Sandy Mundy - Testimonial





Cases

BCW&S ensured that a cashier was not denied Workers’ Compensation merely for failure to give written notice after she had explained the details of her injury to her employer. The cashier reported tearing her wrist while scanning items at the register. Although she notified her employer the next day and he wrote down the details of the event, she did not file a written report requesting compensation until about a year later. The employer argued that she was barred from recovery for failure to provide notice within a year.
We persuaded the Court of Appeals to award our client attorney fees after he was forced to seek our assistance. Workers’ Compensation laws allow an employee to collect an attorney fee if a claim is originally denied and the employee must obtain an attorney make the claim successful, and the Court adopted a flexible view of when a Workers’ Compensation claimant can request these fees.

TESTIMONIAL
