A man working as a laborer for a recycling plant suffered a severe injury to his low back when he was setting up Gaylords. His symptoms extended into his right lower leg. He was unable to return to work and eventually underwent a lumbar fusion surgery. Unfortunately, the man remained symptomatic after his fusion surgery and was not able to return to his job at the recycling plant. In fact, his doctors determined that there was very little work that the man could perform in light of his ongoing pain and symptoms from his work injury. Fields Law Firm argued that the man was rendered permanently and totally disabled as a result of his work injury and secured a large settlement for the man. As part of the settlement, the workers’ compensation insurer remains responsible for reasonable, necessary medical treatment related to his work injury.
