- Negotiated a permanent total disability settlement package for over $4.8 million for a client who suffered a severe neuro injury after falling from a ladder.
- Successfully argued for Illinois jurisdiction for an employee who was injured in St. Louis while working for a Missouri company by showing that the contract for employment was made when the employee was contacted at his Illinois residence. This resulted in the employee’s recurrent knee injury being deemed compensable, and we collected $150,000.00 to cover the costs of medical treatment, TTD, and PPD.
- Negotiated a $175,000.00 wage differential settlement for a truck driver employee who was unable to return to driving due to a back injury.
- Negotiated a permanent total disability settlement package of over $800,000.00 for an employee whose injury left him unable to return to regular employment.
- Successfully argued that an employee’s back injuries, which had been denied by the insurance company, were related to two separate incidences at her job. The defense had denied the employee’s claims based on a “no notice” defense and by relying on inconsistencies in the medical records. I was able to show that notice was given just not recorded by the supervisor and that the inconsistencies were inconsequential, resulting in an award for benefits and an ultimate settlement of $75,000.00.
- Successfully argued for benefits for an employee’s bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome. The employee’s injury was denied when the insurance company attributed her carpal tunnel syndrome to her being a woman over 50 rather than 13 years of repetitive hand motions at her employer.
