We represented a man who injured his left shoulder when he fell off of a truck while working as an abatement worker. As result of his shoulder injury, the man underwent a rotator cuff repair operation and participated in extensive therapy. Post-surgery, he began to suffer from numbness and tingling in his left hand. The worker’s doctors placed him on permanent work restrictions due to his work injury. Because of his restrictions, the man was laid off and forced to go back to work at a lower wage that what he had earned prior to his work injury. Our team fought the insurance company to compensate him for loss in earning capacity. The settlement included $100,000 and an agreement that the employer and insurer would pay for future medical treatment related to the work injury.
