After 20 years, our own Dan Capron has retired as an on-field official for the Big Ten Conference. His final game was the Big Ten Championship on December 7, 2019, at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.
What a run! Dan has officiated more than 200 Big Ten games and has had many memorable moments, including the Sugar Bowl, the Peach Bowl, the Orange Bowl, two Big Ten championships, and the 2018 National Championship.
As he said in this blog post, “A good official is in charge of the game without being arrogant or haughty” — a good way to describe Dan as a partner at Capron & Avgerinos.
Congratulations, Dan, on a distinguished career on the field!
As owner/operators, truckers are technically not full-time employees of the trucking company that hired them. But that does not mean owner/operator truckers are ineligible for workers’ compensation.
In some instances, you don’t need to be on the property of your employer to suffer a work-related injury.
The right physician will stand up to your employer and insurance company if they try to deny you your rightful benefits. The wrong physician will cost you dearly.
Truckers: hurt on the job? You have more options than you think. But slow your roll and get legal counsel before you file that workers’ compensation claim.
