    In order to establish a claim for benefits as the result of a work injury, the injured worker has the burden of proof to show a connection between the injury and the employment. This requires competent factual testimony and competent unequivocal medical testimony. Medical testimony is usually submitted during testimony given under oath by a physician. In some instances, medical testimony may be submitted by report. The medical opinion evidence must be rendered within a reasonable degree of medical certainty and requires more than guesses or probabilities.
