Hubbard v. Hills Materials A $5.0 million award for employer stonewalling of Worker's Comp claims - Ron Hubbard, a construction laborer, needed $5,998 in medical treatment for carpal tunnel injuries brought on by his work for Hills Materials in South Dakota. But his supervisors were given bonuses for denying and defeating such claims in a company wide program to reduce worker's compensation claims. For "aiding and abetting the commission of a tort a South Dakota court recently awarded $65,000 in compensatory damages and $5,000,000 in punative damages against the employer involved in such conduct for its role in getting its insurer to wrongfully deny Mr. Hubbard's claim.

Recent Personal Injury and Car Accident News

An important victory in the fight for individual rights (as opposed to insurer rights) is the case of Yukumoto and HMSA v. Tawahara. In that case on May 26, 2017, the Hawaii Supreme Court rejected the efforts of a health insurer who tried to convert its insurance coverage into a 'loan agreement' and recover its medical expense payments from Mr. Yukumoto when he had a 3rd party claim - in spite of the fact that he was not being fully compensated for his losses. This insidious insurance practice has been damaging the citizens and members of the Hawaii community for many years. For more info, see the decision here: Yukumoto and HMSA v. Tawahara, Hawaii Sup. Ct. No. SCAP-15-0000460 (May 26, 2017).
