Workers’ compensation is an essential element in a worker’s ability to recover from work-related injuries. The team at Rodich Law recently secured a victory for a client who was injured when he was run over by a car. The injury required a substantial amount of medical treatment over the course of several years. Our client was ultimately awarded a civil settlement of $4.75 million.
Typically, when an injured worker receives a civil settlement, the proceeds are deducted against any award they receive in workers’ compensation. However, at trial, our law office was successful in getting the defendant to wave any credit rights they had. Moreover, we were also able to recover an additional payment of $126,000 and our client’s future medical care for the rest of his life.
Workers’ Compensation Benefits
When workers are injured while performing their job duties, they are entitled to certain workers’ compensation benefits, including current medical expenses, anticipated medical expenses, lost wages, and more, depending on the type of injuries sustained. Working with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney is crucial to ensuring you receive the benefits you are entitled to.
Our law office has represented countless claims and successfully recovered substantial awards for our clients who come from a variety of occupations, including grocery store employees, police officers, construction workers, firefighters, and more.
