    Case Summaries

    CLIENT 16530
    A woman was a passenger in a minivan that hydroplaned on Route 422 and swerved violently as the van attempted to come to a stop. Our client was thrown from the middle seating row into the back row and sustained injuries to her neck and low back requiring cervical spine surgery and surgery to her low back. Notwithstanding our client’s advanced age and the degenerative condition of her spine we were able to show that her surgeries were related to accident and we obtained a recovery from the liability and underinsured motorist carriers totaling $340,000.00.

    CLIENT 17258
    As a result of a work injury, our client suffered a low back injury in the nature of a an annular tear of a lumbar disc; however, he did not require surgery. The Defendant workers’ compensation insurance carrier commenced litigation against our client and hired a vocational expert in an attempt to reduce his disability benefits by proving that work was generally available to him within his restrictions. We hired our own vocational expert in opposition to the modification petition as a result of which we obtained a settlement for our client in the amount of $118,000.00.

    CLIENT 17898
    Our client, a tractor-trailer driver, had been working for his company for 20 years when he sustained a torn rotator cuff as a result of a fall he took while unloading a truck. Because our client was unable to return to his job as a truck driver, the workers’ compensation insurance carrier filed a petition against our client seeking to suspend his benefits alleging that he had retired from the work force and also sought to modify his benefits alleging that work was generally available to him within his restrictions. In opposition to the vocational and medical experts hired by the work comp carrier we presented the testimony of Claimant’s treating doctor as a result of which we obtained a settlement for our client in the amount of $170,000.00.

    CLIENT 16498
    Our client, an over-the-road truck driver, injured his neck when he feel from his truck on an icy winter day. The employer and its workers’ compensation insurance carrier denied that Claimant sustained an injury in the course and scope of his employment and we filed a Claim Petition on his behalf to obtain workers’ compensation wage and medical benefits. The Workers’ Compensation Judge ruled in our favor and we were successful in obtaining medical coverage and full disability benefits for our client. As a result of our success during litigation we were later able to obtain a settlement for our client in the amount of $150,000.00.

    CLIENT 12519
    Our client, a security officer, sustained a herniated disc in her neck as a result of breaking up an altercation between two people. She underwent cervical spine fusion surgery for her injury, which resulted in a small horizontal scar in the crease of her neck. Given the nature of her injury, our client was unable to return to her job in the field of security. We won a workers’ compensation settlement totaling $134,000.00, with $125,000.00 attributable to the wage and medical claim and $9,000.00 attributable to the disfigurement claim arising from the surgical scar.
