Towle v. Kris-Way Truck Leasing
December 11, 2013
Fringe Benefits Partial Incapacity Calculation of Benefits Average Weekly Wage Coulombe v. Anthem BC/BS
Summary from the Troubh Heisler Attorneys
Towle apparently injured himself at work and filed petitions, resulting in an award of partial incapacity benefits. Towle argued that Judge Elwin erred when she calculated his benefits by including his pre-injury fringe benefits as part of his pre-injury AWW under §102(4)(H) and Coulombe. The Appellate Division affirmed the decision in summary fashion.
