It seems a little odd to get a second opinion about a hand injury. Lets not all forget that Muller and Co. flat out lied last year about Skinner not having a concussion.
Not really. Back in my workers' comp days, we had a client get a second, even a third opinion on a hand injury - the initial treating doctor's opinion, our expert's opinion, and then the defense's expert. Beyond that as others have said who were at the STH event, Skinner was there and not signing anything, but was taking pictures with cameras that had their flashes on. That points to wrist, not concussion.
