The Workers’ Compensation Research manual has links to the actual case text within the Lexis-Nexis database. You can only use this feature if you are a subscriber to the Lexis-Nexis service. If you want to view a particular case, simply click on the hyper-linked case name. If you want to view the Shepard’s page for that case, click on the link called “Shepardize”. You may be prompted to enter your Lexis ID/password information. After entering your account information, you will be directed to the case of interest. Consider keeping your Lexis-Nexis session open to avoid having to enter your password information repeatedly each time you wish to look up a case from the Research Manual.
