Robert Hanneman successfully defends an accident claim on orthopedic injuries

    Successfully defended an accident claim where the employee alleged orthopedic and psychiatric injuries from a motor vehicle accident. The claim was initially accepted by the carrier based on the early information provided by the employee.  After further investigation, statements from the employee, pictures of the accident site and determination as to the location of employee’s place of business and home in relation to the accident site, Rob argued that the employee was not in the course and scope of his employment when the accident happened.  The claim was then denied and the employee voluntarily withdrew the workers’ compensation claim.
