Blume Donnelly Partner, Jeffrey J. Zenna, represented a 27 year old man from Georgia who was in New Jersey on business. Our client accompanied a co-worker who drove a company vehicle, on a non-work related errand. The co-worker caused an accident in which our passenger client sustained a fractured hip requiring surgery. The motor vehicle insurance carrier denied the claim, asserting that it was secondary to employment related activities, and was therefore a Workers Compensation claim. Mr. Zenna was able to prove that the use of the vehicle was not work related, and therefore the claim was not barred. Jeff Zenna settled this case for $300,000.
