Caswell, Panko & Westerhold, LLC

Jennifer Caswell andErin Fox successfully obtained a reversal of the trial court’s award of medical and indemnity benefits to the claimant following an appeal. The trial court awarded additional medical evaluation and ongoing temporary total disability benefits. The Nebraska Court of Appeals agreed with the employer’s argument that there was insufficient evidence in the record to support the trial court’s finding that the employee’s work caused her injury. The Court also agreed that some portions of the trial court’s decision were clearly erroneous. Therefore, the decision was reversed in full and no benefits were due.
