Workers’ Compensation Verdicts & Settlements

Personal Injury at Work

Our firm represented an individual concerning a personal injury and workers’ compensation claim. Our client was working for his employer as a billboard poster, when he fell approximately 35 feet from a billboard catwalk. He sustained serious injuries, including 2 broken arms, which required surgery. We were able to get his temporary total disability payments started and upon his release from the doctor, we settled his workers’ compensation claim. We investigated his personal injury claim and hired an expert engineer who determined that the catwalk was not properly welded. We litigated this case and we were eventually able to mediate our client’s third party claim for over $950,000.00.

Workers’ Compensation Claim with Permanent Disability

Our Firm represented a forty-nine-year-old man who was involved in a wreck through no fault of his own while working on the job for his employer. The client suffered a traumatic brain injury in the wreck which his employer denied. As a result of his traumatic brain injury, the client developed psychological injuries which the employer denied as well. Our firm fought for the client and the employer was ordered to provide medical treatment for all his injuries. The employer hired a doctor to try and prove that client did not have a traumatic brain injury and was exaggerating his injuries. When the employer refused to pay a fair settlement for client’s permanent injuries and inability to work, our firm took the case to trial and presented the testimony of three experts to prove that client did in fact have a traumatic brain injury and psychological injuries. The trial court disregarded the employer’s “hired gun” expert witness and ruled in favor of the client and found him permanently and totally disabled and awarded a judgment against the employer in the amount of $561,916.90. Furthermore, the trial court ordered the employer to pay for the medical treatment for his on the job injuries for the remainder of his life.

Judgment Awarded for Inadequate Safety Regulations

The law firm successfully obtained a jury verdict in the amount of $211,000.00 against the Defendant, reduced by 10% for negligence on behalf of the Defendant’s employee and 10% on behalf of our client. We represented an individual who was injured by an employee of a company due to inadequate safety regulations. Our client was cut by a chainsaw, sustaining deep lacerations to his right arm, as well as severing tendons, which required surgery. Our client incurred medical bills in the amount of $29,775.71. Not only were we able to assist said individual with his workers’ compensation claim, our firm was also successful with the pursuit of a third party liability claim against the company who employed the negligent worker.

Workers’ Compensation Claim Arising From Traumatic Brain Injury Accident

Our Firm represented a forty-nine-year-old man who was involved in an accident while working on-the-job for his employer. The client suffered a traumatic brain injury in the accident which the workers’ compensation insurance company denied. As a result of his traumatic brain injury, the client developed psychological injuries which the employer denied as well. Our firm fought extremely hard for the client and the workers’ compensation insurance company was ordered to provide medical treatment for all his injuries. The insurance company hired a doctor to try and prove that the client did not have a traumatic brain injury and was faking and exaggerating his injuries. When the insurance company refused to pay a fair and reasonable settlement for the client’s traumatic brain injury and inability to work, our team of NST lawyers took the case to trial and presented the testimony of three experts to prove that the client did in fact have a traumatic brain injury and psychological injuries. The trial court disregarded the insurance company’s “hired gun” expert witness and ruled in favor of the client and found him permanently and totally disabled and awarded a judgment against the workers’ compensation insurance company in the amount of $561,916.90. Furthermore, the trial court ordered the insurance company to pay for the medical treatment for his injuries for the remainder of his life.
