Maxa Protects Kitsap Physicians’ Services from $200,000 Claim

Brad Maxa successfully defended a health insurer against a $200,000 claim, achieving a solid victory recently affirmed by the Court of Appeals.  Maxa asserted that a truck driver’s accident arose out of his employment even though the driver was off-duty at the time of the crash, because the driver owned the truck and was driving it to get it repaired.  Maxa’s client, Kitsap Physicians’ Services, didn’t cover the drivers’ work activities.  Maxa successfully argued that providing coverage would have gone beyond the drivers’ coverage and raised rates for Kitsap’s other policy holders.
