Our team represented a machinist with a physically demanding job who sustained a herniated disc in his low back at work. Despite extensive chiropractic care and physical therapy, our client’s pain was too severe for him to continue to do his pre-injury job. The workers’ compensation insurer initially accepted liability for the work injury, but eventually discontinued paying the benefits arguing that the employee had stopped working and that his disabling condition was unrelated to the admitted work injury. Despite this, our workers’ compensation attorneys helped the client obtain a significant settlement in the amount $100,000, which allowed him to move past his unfortunate work injury.
