$725,000 Workers’ Compensation Settlement

$725,000 Workers’ Compensation Settlement

Settlement: $725,000

Attorney: Gene Riddle

An agricultural services worker injured his back carrying heavy objects while on the job. Our client’s injury required back surgery and fusion, a spinal cord stimulator implant and ongoing pain management. Defendants denied our client any benefits, so we argued the case in front of the Industrial Commission and our client received a favorable decision. Worker's compensation lawyer Gene Riddle handled the case.

Defendants did not appeal the decision and were ordered to pay back pay as well as ongoing benefits. After nine years of payments, the case settled at a mediated settlement conference for $725,000 which included a Medicare Set Aside annuity valued at $525,000.


If you've been injured on the job in North Carolina, you may be entitled to workers' compensation benefits and we would love to help however we can. Call 1-800-525-7111 today for a free, no-obligation consultation with the legal team at Riddle & Brantley today.
