Last week, attorney Nathan Maudlin, of Klezmer Maudlin P.C., received a favorable decision from the Indiana Court of Appeals. In the case, a decision from the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Board was vacated and remanded back to the Board.
At the hearing before the Board, the Board member awarded benefits to an injured worker, but only ½ of the claimed lost wages (TTD). Attorney Maudlin appealed on behalf of the injured worker and argued that the evidence presented at hearing did not support an award of 50% of the lost wages and only supported an award of full lost wages. The Court of Appeals agreed and determined that the award was not supported by the evidence.
Attorney Nathan Maudlin was pleased that the Court of Appeals sent the case back to the Board. The Board is now required to state with more explanation why the decision was made. Mr. Maudlin’s goal is to fight for his client’s right under the Indiana Workers’ Compensation Act and to help obtain maximum benefits owed to injured workers.
