Case Conclusion Date:February 12, 2009
Practice Area:Workers Compensation
Outcome:Secured lifetime lost wage benefits.
Description:Our client was a 42 year old pipe fitter who suffered a low back injury. At the time our representation began, our client was receiving no lost wage benefits. During the course of our representation, we were able to secure lifetime lost wage benefits (permanent total disability benefits) on behalf of our client. As a result, the insurance company had to pay our client $50,000 in past lost wage benefits and agree to pay our client lost wage benefits for the rest of his life. After receiving these benefits, we were able to subsequently structure a settlement of his case worth in excess of an additional $600,000.
