In March, David filed a lawsuit in Huntsville, Madison County, Alabama on behalf of a client injured while working. David’s client hurt his back lifting hardwood boards. Our client suffered serious injuries to his back. Our client continues to have pain and leg numbness, requiring ongoing medical care including several prescription medications to treat his daily pain. He worked in the lumber industry for over thirty years, but due to his injuries and permanent work restrictions he can no longer perform this line of work. He is disabled pursuant to the Social Security Administration due to the injuries sustained in the accident.
Six months after filing the claim in court, the claim settled at mediation for $150,000 with the employer/workers’ compensation carrier being responsible for our client’s future medical care related to the on-the-job accident. This was a most significant settlement for our client but most important for him, the several medications and other treatment he is prescribed will be paid for by the employer/workers’ compensation carrier. The settlement, which was approved by the Circuit Court Judge, was a very good result for a deserving client. This case was filed in Madison County, Alabama.
