    Auto mechanic with fifteen years of neck pain and depression - $500,000 settlement

    Our client, a mechanic, had sustained an injury to his neck while working on an automobile fifteen years before coming to us. He was diagnosed with a cervical disc herniation. Over the course of the next few years, he underwent three spinal surgeries (including one to correct a previous incorrectly done procedure) and rigorous physical and occupational therapy. Unfortunately, his condition continued to worsen and as a result of not being able to work, along with debilitating chronic pain, he developed severe depression. In fact, he was never able to return to work. Throughout this entire period, our client was receiving weekly workers' compensation benefits and received medical care. But after fifteen years, he had had enough of the workers' compensation system and wanted to settle his case. That’s why he came to us. We negotiated a settlement of over half a million dollars in new money.

    Highway rear-end accident with shoulder injury – 63 year old male - $325,000.00 settlement

    Our client was hit from behind at high speed while on an out-of-state highway, forcing his car off the roadway. Our client suffered a torn rotator cuff of his right shoulder but also had a history of right shoulder pain just prior to the car accident.

    On the job car accident with neck injury and repetitive trauma claim - over $1 million settlement

    Frank, a roofer for nearly 40 years was injured on the job in a car accident. He suffered an injury to his neck, ultimately requiring fusion surgery. From the time of the accident, we were able to maintain weekly workers’ compensation payments for Frank of over $625.00. At the same time, we brought suit against two parties we believed were at fault for the accident. With the use of our team of experts including an accounting firm, we were able to settle Frank’s personal injury claim for over $325,000, while still keeping his workers’ compensation claim open, maintaining his weekly checks and all medical treatment.

    While the case for his neck injury was still pending, we then made a “repetitive trauma” claim that as a result of his over 30 years on the job of hard manual labor, he now had back problems and that his back problems were related to his employment. Once again we employed a team of experts, this time a vocational expert, an orthopedic surgeon and our team of workers’ compensation specialists, we were able to put together a package to settle his workers’ compensation case for an additional $315,000. With proper wording in the settlement paperwork, we were able to leave his Social Security benefits unaffected and actually increase his pension benefits. Between his personal injury settlement, his weekly workers’ compensation benefits and his workers’ compensation “stipulation,” we were able to recover over one million dollars
