Work Related Injury Metal Gate Fell on Employee's Head
In Central Park Lodge v. Workers' Compensation Appeal Board (Robinson), 718 A.2d 368 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1998), Robinson was injured at work when a metal gate fell on her head.
It was conclusively established in the claim petition proceeding that Robinson was disabled due to work-related injuries to her neck, back, and head, and the head injuries involved a concussion and post-concussion syndrome.
Central Park Lodge's expert testimony only addressed claimant's neck and back injuries and failed to address Robinson's head injury (i.e., her concussion and post-concussion syndrome).
On those facts, this Court affirmed the board's decision that Central Park Lodge's petition to terminate was not supported by sufficient evidence.
