Case Conclusion Date:April 18, 2012
Practice Area:Car Accidents
Description:Mr. Weaver was injured on the job when his work vehicle was rear-ended on December 30, 2009. He suffered a significant back injury which ultimately required surgery. The permanent physical restrictions related to the surgery prevented him from returning to his pre-accident position with his company. He was able to return to the workforce but at a slightly lower pay rate. Mark Wolfe of BF&W handled the workers compensation claim, and the related liability claim and the underinsured motorist claim for Mr. Weaver. After the lawsuit was filed, the parties reached a settlement of $400,000.00 on the liability and underinsured motorist claims. The workers compensation claim was also resolved and included a recovery for Mr. Weaver for future vocational re-training benefits.
