State, ex rel. McCoy v. Dedicated Transport, 2002-Ohio-5305

We successfully defended a request made by a terminated employee for temporary total compensation.  The Ohio Supreme Court ruled that because the employee was fired for violating company rules, he forfeited his eligibility for temporary total compensation, even though his disability worsened to the point where he could no longer work.  This resulted in significant cost savings to our client.  It also served as a landmark case on the issue of voluntary abandonment.
