2019 Permanent Total Disability Trial Award – $500,000 Lifetime PayoutVaughan Law Group
A 59-year-old food service worker sustained a right shoulder injury that lead to arthroscopic surgery. The employer would not take her back to work after being released by her doctor and being assigned permanent work restrictions. Vaughan Law Group requested job searching assistance from W/C but they refused to help. The judge found that the client had put forth a good-faith job search and was entitled to an award of Permanent and Total Disability. She will receive this money ($400,000) until age 75 with 5% cost-of-living increases every year. She will also get to continue treating with her doctors which will be paid for by workers compensation, valued at approximately another $100,000.
