Workers’ Compensation Judge Ruled Municipality Not Responsible To Employee

Workers’ Compensation Judge ruled Municipality not responsible to employee claiming back injury and surgery from lifting water meter lid, when the evidence showed that the claimant could not have clocked in at work, driven to the location of injury and then be evaluated within the time seen at the hospital emergency room.  Moreover, Judge found claimant not credible in her testimony regarding disability thus failing to meet the burden of proof by a preponderance of the evidence.
