Christian Sison and guest Timothy Kane review five Third Department decisions that were issued last month. Claimants in these cases alleged neck injuries after decelerating 5 miles per hour in a truck, alleged being smashed like a jelly donut by an elevator, and alleged eye injuries due to pepper spray in a prison. This is real life. These people are real, apparently!
Christian and Tim discuss these cases and note the difficulty in having the Board’s decisions overturned or reversed. All five of the Third Department cases affirmed the Board’s rulings. This fostered dialogue between Christian and Tim regarding when to go to the Third Department and how we should be proactive at the Board level.
