Successful Workers’ Compensation Settlement

Mr. Patterson represented a worker who sustained multiple unreported low back injuries, between 1995 through 2005 with multiple Employers and Insurers. Mr. Patterson obtained expert testimony from an orthopedic surgeon who provided his opinion that the Employee's prior unreported injuries, as well his current work duties, were a substantial contributing factor to his need for surgery. The four separate Employers and Insurers each obtained independent medical reports opining that the Employee's condition was not work related. Mr. Patterson successfully negotiated a $155,000.00 settlement on behalf of the Employee.
