Fields Law represented a man who worked as school janitor. The man slipped and fell on ice while working, tearing his right shoulder rotator cuff. Due to his injury, the man was not able to return to his job as a janitor. His employer initially compensated him for his injury, but eventually stopped paying benefits based on a doctor’s opinion that his shoulder problem was pre-existing and that his work injury was only temporary in nature. The Fields Law team worked with the client’s treating doctors to refute the employer’s position. They helped him obtained a settlement from his employer of $150,000, which included compensation for wage loss, medical expenses, and the permanent disability he incurred as the result of his work injury.
