John Mohan successfully defends workers compensation claim for Centaur Building Services

Jun 22, 2012

John Mohan obtained a ruling on June 21, 2012 from the Division of Workers”™ Compensation finding that a claimant was not entitled to any benefits from the Firm’s client, Centaur Building Services.   The claimant, a 48-year old former employee of the Firm’s client, was seeking permanent total disability benefits from both Centaur and the Second Injury Fund.   She was also seeking payment of her future lifetime medical and psychiatric expenses which were estimated in excess of $20,000 per year.   If found liable, Centaur would have been responsible for hundreds of thousands of dollars in benefits to the claimant for the rest of her life.   John argued, and the Administrative Law Judge agreed, that the medical condition was not caused by her work with Centaur, and therefore Centaur was not liable for any workers’ compensation benefits.
