✍ GERALD'S CASE OF THE WEEK
Successful Workers' Compensation Settlement for Death in Single Vehicle Auto Accident
Ms. Denton's husband died when his van flipped over in Midlothian. He was on a work errand to pickup oil for the compressors. The insurer denied the claim, stating the death was due to "unknown causes." There was some difficulty with the case because the decedent (obviously) could not testify about what caused his accident. However, we were able to show the decedent died immediately after the rollover accident. In the past, the Virginia Supreme Court has said that if the worker is found dead at his place of employment, then the death is "presumed" to have been caused by the employment. We used this "death presumption" doctrine to reach a successful settlement for Ms. Denton's widow claim.
