Workers' Compensation Appellate Court Opinion

by Townsend, Karen


AC39488- Clements v. Aramark Corp. ("The principal issue in this appeal is the compensability, under the Workers’ Compensation Act (act), General Statutes § 31-275 et seq., of an injury to an employee that occurred on an employer’s premises when the employee became lightheaded, fell, and hit her head while walking to her work station before the start of her shift... The plaintiff claims that the board erred in holding that, because the plaintiff’s fall was caused by her personal infirmity, rather than a workplace condition, her resultant head injury did not arise out of and in the course of her employment within the meaning of the act. We agree and, accordingly, reverse the decision of the board.")
