Petitioner vs. Burial Vault Manufacturer

This was a contested case involving the issue of whether the petitioner suffered an accident at work. The arbitrator found the petitioner lacked credibility, especially given his failure to mention his alleged work accident to three separate medical providers after the alleged date of accident, and denied compensation.

The respondent presented a witness to dispute the petitioner’s allegations with regard to notice, vigorously cross examined the petitioner regarding inconsistent medical histories, and also elicited damaging concessions from the petitioner.
