A weld polisher was rotating a thousand pound tank at work when he felt a twinge in his back. He went home from work and the pain only got worse. His doctor told him he had a herniated disc and would be unable to return to work. He received a monthly benefit from his employer’s workers compensation insurer. Eventually, the insurance company wanted him to return to work, but his pain was still too much.

Frustrated that the insurance company was not listening to his symptoms, he contacted Fields Law Firm for help. Our attorneys jumped into action, contacting the insurance company and our client’s doctors for records. Fields Attorneys filed a claim with the Department of Labor, and the insurance company agreed to mediate the dispute. Our attorneys were able to aggressively negotiate a $100,000 settlement. Our client was pleased with the settlement amount, and happy with the professional advocacy from Fields Law Firm.
