Woods Fuller Attorneys Present at 2015 SD Work Comp Summit

Several Woods Fuller Attorneys presented at the SD Work Comp Summit on June 24th. Attorney Justin Smith gave a legislative update on the state of workers compensation in South Dakota. Attorney Jeff Shultz discussed recent South Dakota Supreme Court Decisions including the "game changer" Wheeler v. Cinna Bakers LLC d/b/a Cinnabon & Hartford Casual Insurance Company (2015 SD 25) as well as bad faith cases in South Dakota work comp cases.

Attorney Jennifer Van Anne discussed recent South Dakota Department of Labor decisions of significance. Attorney Amanda Bahena discussed immigration law and workers compensation. Although this is an unlitigated topic in South Dakota, it is nonetheless of great import in how employers and claims adjusters handle claims with undocumented workers. For those attending the Summit on June 25th, they will be able to see Woods Fuller's very own Attorney Comet Haraldson participating in a Mock IME.
