THE ALTOONA MIRROR-WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1929 HH1P DECISION ON COMPENSATION Motorist, Asphyxiated While * Repairing Oaf Preparatory ^ to Going to Work, Was Engaged In Line of Duty. WASHINGTON, D. C., Nov. 13.— A unique decision, construing , the workmen's Compensation act of Nebraska and its relation ttf a motoJst, using ills oar for the benefit of his employer, has been handed doton 'by the supreme court of Nebraska.' The case, reported by the legal department of the American Motorists association, is regarded by the association as one of importance to hundreds of thousands of motorists throughout the country who use their automobiles in the course of their employment. ' The • decision is of widespread importance, the A. M. A. points out, because of the fact that forty- four states, and the District of Columbia, now have workmen's compensation acts, more or less similar to the Nebraska act. ' The case arose when-a motorist was killed, 'while repairing, his car. He was found, dead In.his garage from carbon ', monoxide . poisoning, Several tools lay at hand, indicating that he had been overcome while doing repair work,' just i prior to leaving his home for his official, duties, i The "employer claimed, that the em- 1 ploye had not been requested to use wJbta/caf : in connection with his daily f work and that... no, contract for the ' car's Use had ever-been sanctioned. The employer further claimed that the employe' was not working for him at the time of - the death and that death did not arise out of employment. The court held the evidence clear that the employe had been using the car for the benefit of the employer, and that he had gone to the garage to get the car to perform a duty In line with his work. It makes no difference, the court declared, whether there was an express or implied contract for the use of the car in the work. • "Where the work Is being done for the benefit of the employer, where the car is used with his knowledge and consent, and where the employe is'-"killed -or injured while using that instrumentality, it will be held that he was about his master's business," the court declared, in awarding the deceased'3 widow $15 per week for 350 week's. ; cl 'I tf \ ci A- P AUIi SARRA.
