$300,000 Workers’ Compensation settlement in Orlando district
This workers’ compensation case in the Orlando district was litigated heavily on behalf of a 35 year old young man who sustained a low back injury in a workers’ compensation accident. Following surgery and a period of unsuccessful job searching, the workers’ comp insurance company accepted this gentleman as permanently and totally disabled just prior to going to trial. This acceptance of permanent total disability was in large part due to the testimony of the neurosurgeon who operated and provided follow-up treatment. Consequently, the injured worker decided to settle his case for $300,000.
