  • Montoya v. Wy. Workers' Compensation
    Injured worker had a non-work related auto accident several years prior to his work injury that resulted in him suffering from migraines. He slipped and fell at work striking his head and soon suffered additional and increased headaches and memory loss. It was ultimately determined that the worker suffered from a traumatic brain injury. The Division denied benefits claiming his condition was preexisting. The Supreme Court reversed this decision stating there was overwhelming evidence that the worker's fall aggravated his preexisting condition.
