Successfully Defended a National Broker for Delivery Services in Workers’ Compensation Claim

The claimant was a contract delivery driver for our client. While en route to a delivery, he was involved in a motor vehicle accident and sustained injuries, which resulted in surgical intervention. After receiving the maximum duration of benefits under a personally-funded Truckers Occupational Accident Insurance Policy, the claimant filed a claim petition alleging that he was an employee of the defendant. We argued that the claimant was an independent contractor rather than an employee, thereby barring his ability to pursue benefits under the Workers’ Compensation Act. The parties presented testimonial and documentary evidence on this issue, and the Workers’ Compensation Judge ultimately accepted the defendant’s argument, denying the claim petition in its entirety.
