Andy Avram and Brad Kline served as hosts for the May 11 Cranfill Sumner LLP webinar entitled, “Compensability of Unexplained Falls.”
One of the most common compensability issues with workers’ compensation claims in North Carolina is those involving unexplained falls. They reviewed the established law in N.C. workers’ compensation claims when unexplained falls occur; the questions presented when an idiopathic condition appears to have caused the fall; some of the key differences between a truly unexplained fall and one caused by an idiopathic condition; and best practices for handling a claim involving these types of falls.
Andy is the Chair of the Risk Management and Workers’ Compensation Practice Group, and Brad is an attorney in the practice group. Both attorneys are Partners based in the firm’s Charlotte office.
