Workers’ Compensation Claim Dismissed over Lack of Relationship between Claimant and Trucking Company February 4, 2019

On November 1, 2018, Goldberg Segalla associate attorney Kim Sierra, a member of the firm’s Workers’ Compensation Practice Group, won a case at trial when the claim against our client, a trucking company, was dismissed. The case was dismissed because the claimant, who alleged she hurt her hip, pelvis, back, and shin when she slipped and fell on snow as she was preparing to climb back into her work truck, was an independent contractor, not a covered employee.
