Worker’s compensation — Employer’s motion to reopen case — Finality of commission’s denial of motion
Chase Montgomery, a Baltimore City police officer, filed a claim with the Workers’ Compensation Commission seeking compensation for an injury he sustained when he stepped out of his patrol vehicle, lost his balance, and hit his head on the vehicle. In its response to the claim, the City did not contest that Officer Montgomery’s injury had arisen out of and in the course of his employment. The Commission issued an order finding that Officer Montgomery’s injury was connected causally to his employment.
