Workers’ Compensation/Auto Accident
Our client suffered a back injury in an automobile accident while on the job. Client’s injuries required back surgery. Our client’s workers’ compensation case was admittedly compensable which allowed our client to receive compensation for all medical expenses, including the back surgery, as well as wage replacement compensation during the period of disability.
Once our client reached maximum medical improvement and after receiving the aforementioned benefits, our client’s workers’ compensation case was then resolved for $200,000 plus a complete lien waiver in the third party auto accident case.
Our client’s automobile accident case against the other driver was then settled for an additional $87,000 prior to suit being filed.
