Pictures posted on Facebook lead to workers’ compensation denial

An Arkansas judge rejected an extension of workers’ compensation benefits for an injured worker “after his former employer and insurance company unearthed pictures from social networking sites that showed him ‘drinking and partying.’” Several years ago the man
“suffered a hernia when a refrigerator fell on him. His insurance company and his
employer, a furniture and appliance retailer, paid for medical expenses and disability
payments.” When he applied for an extension, the insurer and retailer submitted
photos from Facebook and MySpace labeled “drinking.” The judge found this to be
“acceptable evidence of recovery.” (msnbc.com – February 3, 2012). If you or a family member has been injured on the job contact Kevin J. McNamara Law Offices, P.C. today at 312-201-8850 for a free consultation.
