In re Claim of Cochran

In In re Claim of Cochran, 993 P.2d 320 (Wyo. 1999), the Court reversed a denial of benefits. Id. at 323. In that case, the employee returned to work for the same employer and at the same pre-injury wage. Id. at 321. However, his employment was terminated six months later, and, because of limitations caused by his injury, he was unable to find work at a comparable or higher wage. Id. Looking just at the two points of time at issue in the case, benefits were denied by the hearing examiner. Id. at 322. However, the Court determined that the employee's injury had prevented him from returning to employment at a comparable wage and reversed that denial of benefits. Id. at 323.
