Catching the Midnight Rider
Sorry Gregg Allman. Looks like they finally caught the Midnight Rider.
An unfortunate tale from WorkCompWire.com about a law enforcement member and his attempt to get more than one silver dollar.
The Allegation: Workers’ Comp Eligible
A corrections officer was shot by a parolee he recognized and thus his injuries are in the course and scope of his employment. The initial monetary demand was for over $3,000 per month for life plus a cool $300,000 for a couple of years of caregiving from the wife.
The Truth: 8 Months in Jail, 5 Years of Probation and $40,000 in Restitution
Because…the injury arose out of a late night dispute at a swingers club that the loving couple attended. A liaison with an unnamed female went bad, and her aggrieved husband exacted revenge with a shot to the back.
No matter how serious the injury or tragic the circumstances, it always pays to look a little closer.
