A federal appeal court on Wednesday confirmed a summary judgment in favor of an insurer for compensation for workers who claimed that the injured driver did not prove his injury and was allegedly "not forthcoming" with information.
Manuel Roman fell from a Shippers West Truckline Inc. truck in 2013 and later claimed to have suffered head injury. He went to the emergency room four days later and was finally diagnosed with high blood pressure and concussion. Two months later, he filed a claim with the Industrial Commission of Arizona, which claimed "brain injury" and "brain clot", according to documents in Manual Roman v. Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Insurance Co. filed in the 9th US Circuit Court in Phoenix.
The insurer of the company Berkshire Hathaway Homestate Insurance Co. did not receive notification of damages after the injury ̵
A United States District Court, the District of Arizona in Phoenix, which granted summary judgment to the insurer, details more than one year during which a claimant sought documents of the damage from medical providers. Mr Rome's original war of sin against Berkshire for 2015 blamed the insurer for delays and claimed that the insurer instructed his adjusters to "target and deny claims" – claiming that the former court is not judged to have a record by record.
The appeal court held the same way and wrote "we agree with the court that Roman could not provide sufficient evidence that Berkshire Hathaway handled his claim in bad faith."
Attorneys involved and the insurer could not be immediately reached for comments.
