Injured Worker Dies Because From Delays In Care

By: Admin

An Injured worker in California dies after numerous delays caused by a workers’ compensation company. Sedgwick. which handles compensation cases for a grocery store chain, was found by a state Worker’s Compensation Appeals Board found to have caused 11 instances of unreasonable delays in authorizing medical care for Mr. Romano. It is alleged that Mr. Romano died as a result of all the delays. The Board stated “We have rarely encountered a case in which a defendant has exhibited such blithe disregard for its legal and ethical obligation to provide medical care to a critically injured worker.” It went on to say that “Sedgwick CMS, acting as a claims administer for the Kroger Company/Ralph’s Grocery Company demonstrated a callous indifference to the catastrophic consequences of its delays, inaction and outright neglect.”
The attorneys involved in the case for Mr. Romano have asked the State to investigate a possible criminal action against the company.
