Change! Workers Compensation gets an overhaul.   The State of Washington just released an easy to read press release on “historic” changes to its workers compensation system. We outlined the legislation that passed back in June 2011, here on the blog. But the Department of Labor & Industries appears to have finally wrapped their head around the regulations.   L&I released its initial press offering back in June 2011, when it announced that changes to its industrial insurance program were… [read post]

I have previously posted on how manufacturers of cabs don't seem to care if a truck driver lives or dies. Trucking companies and truck manufacturers treat drivers like disposable objects, worrying far more about the bottom line than the driver's safety and training. The fact is trucks don't include many of the safety features that car drivers enjoy as standard,  such as rollover protection. My prior blogs on the need for rollover protection can be seen HERE, HERE and HERE. I have also blogged… [read post]

Under Pennsylvania law, in order to establish a claim for benefits under the Workers Compensation Act, an injured worker needs to establish that there was an employment relationship between the injured worker and the alleged employer. This issue is typically seen in cases where the “employer” asserts that the injured worker was not an “employee” or was an independent contractor. The facts of the case are analyzed in the context of several questions regarding the control of the… [read post]

A firefighter/paramedic who was injured after giving a coworker a bear hug will not receive workers’ compensation benefits, the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission (IWCC) has ruled. The commission decided that the worker’s personal actions constituted horseplay and voluntarily increased his risk of being injured. The injury did not arise from the worker’s employment and is therefore noncompensable. In the case, Kaschub v. Darien-Woodridge Fire Protection District, the firefighter was… [read post]
