Highlight

In a tort action to recover damages for a work-related injury, the employer has the burden of establishing by a preponderance of the evidence the defense that the employer is immune from suit under the workers' compensation act.
Issues of fact may become issues of law for the court if reasonable persons could reach only one conclusion from the facts.
