Workers' Compensation Supreme Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


SC19377- Gonzalez v. O. & G. Industries, Inc. (Worker's Compensation; paid compensation benefits; "On appeal, the plaintiffs claim that the trial court improperly concluded that the defendant had ‘paid compensation benefits’ on the basis of an incorrect interpretation of that term as used in § 31-291. We agree with the plaintiffs’ claim that the trial court improperly interpreted the term ‘paid compensation benefits’ in § 31-291, but further conclude that, even under the proper construction of the statute, no genuine issue of material fact exists as to whether the defendant paid compensation benefits to Thompson and McVay. Accordingly, we affirm the judgment of the trial court.")
