$400,000 Workers’ Compensation Settlement in Sarasota District – 2014
This Workers’ Compensation case stemmed from a 2001 date of accident. In 2004 a trial was held wherein the injured employee was awarded Permanent and Total Disability benefits. Weekly payments were made to the insured worker, as well as his on-going medical expenses, through October 2014. At that time, the parties entered into a settlement of the case for $400,000. A Medicare Set-Aside trust was setup out of which future medical bills would be paid. The injured worker is able to continue to receive his Social Security Disability benefits and Medicare.
