Kenneth E. Atkin, Esq.
In his 25 years of practicing Utah workers' compensation law, Kenny has argued cases in front of the Utah Court of Appeals and Utah Supreme Court. One pivotal case involved a long standing abuse by insurance companies. The case involved a worker that was denied benefits solely due to the existence of a preexisting condition. Kenny successfully argued that insurance companies are required to prove a preexisting condition contributed to the injury in order for any higher standard to apply. This victory not only provided benefits to our client, but also paved the way for lifetime benefits under his Permanent Total Disability claim. (Utah Auto Auction and/or American Home Assurance v. Labor Commission and Douglas R. Davis, 2008 UT App 293)
Kenny is an member of the Utah Association of Justice. He is a frequent lecturer and writer on workers' compensation issues, ranging from the basic requirements for coverage, to the very complicated matter of Workers Compensation and the overlap with ERISA insurance claims
