A truck driver fell out of a truck while working for his employer, sustaining a severe low back injury. The employer and its insurer initially paid for wage loss and medical benefits related to his injury. Then the insurer sent him to a doctor for an independent medical examination. The doctor issued a report stating that the worker had sustained a temporary aggravation of a pre-existing back condition that had resolved. Based on this report, the employer discontinued payment of the driver’s wage loss and medical benefits. We fought the employer to obtain a court order which denied the insurer’s attempt to discontinue benefits. In the end, our attorneys and staff worked with the driver’s doctors to obtain a settlement in the amount $100,000 for his work injury.
