$350,000 Workers’ Compensation & Car Accident Settlement
Attorney: Christopher Brantley
Our client was a traveling nurse who suffered severe orthopedic injuries in a rollover car accident, including spinal burst fractures, bilateral ankle fractures, knee fractures, cervical stenosis, and radiculopathy. She underwent emergency surgery with open reduction and external fixation of bilateral ankle fractures, knee surgery, cervical, thoracic and lumbar fusion surgeries. She turned to Riddle & Brantley workers’ compensation lawyers in North Carolina, led by attorney Chris Brantley.
Our client was paid temporary total disability benefits during the healing period. All medical bills were paid. She successfully returned to work with a different employer at higher wages.
Attorney Brantley demanded an Independent Medical Evaluation and was able to secure substantial disability ratings for the client’s multiple injuries. However, the defendants refused to acknowledge the ratings, at which point we filed for a hearing to compel payment of ratings.
The claim settled prior to the hearing for $350,000 and waiver of a substantial overpayment made by the carrier.
For more than 35 years, the North Carolina car accident lawyers at Riddle and Brantley have successfully represented the great people of North Carolina.
