Estela Granadio vs. Alpha Phi International Fraternity; National Fire Insurance Company Of Hartford C/o Cna Claims Plus

; ADJ7534814 is a case in which Estela Granadino, an employee of Alpha Phi International Fraternity, filed a petition for reconsideration objecting to a Joint Findings and Award which found that she did not sustain an injury arising out of and occurring in the course of her employment either on February 26, 2009 or for the period March 1, 2008 through March 2, 2009. The petition was denied due to lack of substantial medical evidence and lack of credibility of Granadino's testimony. The Section 5402(b) presumption of compensability was not applied due to lack of evidence establishing the denials were untimely.
