$180,000 Union Laborer Workers Compensation Settlement
While carrying door panels, claimant experienced soreness in his back which worsened into severe pain. Once a herniated disk was discovered, claimant had surgery. His post-operative ability to return to work was complicated by unrelated heart problems.
“Even though there was a dispute on whether his inability to work was caused by the work accident or the non-work-related heart issue, we were able to obtain a $180,000 settlement, in addition to $56,000 in weekly disability benefits, and full payment of his medical expenses”, said his lawyer, Douglas Rallo.
