Our young client sustained serious injuries, including head and lumbar spine injuries, after a fall from a roof over six years ago. Multiple procedures and surgeries were required. The workers compensation insurer provided every benefit due without serious dispute, while the claimant’s Qualified Rehabilitation Consultant managed the claim and helped him return to work when he was ready. After years of appropriate care, our client achieved a great medical recovery.
Our client had worked his entire career for one employer. He sustained injuries over the years, reporting some and not reporting others. He had a history of low back injury leading to surgery, not related to any work injury, and a history of low back care thereafter. He sustained an injury while temporarily working out of state. That state system determined the injury was temporary and denied benefits. Our client went on to undergo multiple surgeries. We were able to link his need for low back surgeries to distant work injuries. Our client achieved an excellent settlement of the claim through mediation.
Our client had a strong work history. She began to experience cognitive decline years ago, but was properly diagnosed only recently.
