Workers’ Compensation Compensability Claim Denied

November 2016

mwt-3-quarter

 

 

Matt Tills recently won a hearing on compensability. The claimant delayed reporting the injury for a month and a half and only did so once he was laid off. There was a legitimate problem with the claimant’s knee but the judge denied the claim based on the delay in reporting and the introduction of text messages at hearing which damaged the claimant’s credibility.
