May v. Delta Air Lines, Inc.

May v. Delta Air Lines, Inc., No. WC12-5468 (W.C.C.A. Dec. 27, 2012). Affirmed.

This case is interesting because it involved a repetitive use injury but the nature of the injury was a humerus fracture. The W.C.C.A. found that although it is unusual for repetitive activities to lead to an injury of that nature, substantial evidence supported the compensation judge’s finding that work activities caused the injury. This evidence included the treating doctor’s opinions that repetitive loading and unloading of carry-on luggage caused a stress fracture, which led to the gradual displacement of the humerus.
