Workers’ Compensation Case Summaries

Petitioner vs. Temporary Staffing Agency

The petitioner alleged a back injury which occurred in the week leading up to his termination. Due to our investigation, our attorneys obtained a voice message from petitioner that makes no reference to an alleged accident, but rather frustration due to being terminated. The arbitrator found the respondent’s witnesses and evidence to be more convincing than the petitioner’s testimony and denied benefits.

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.
