A truck driver slipped during a routine unloading of his truck, and he twisted his ankle. When his symptoms persisted, he sought medical treatment and was diagnosed with a ruptured tendon. The driver contacted us and we monitored his case to ensure all benefits were paid. He required multiple surgeries to his injured ankle, and he ultimately developed disabling complex regional pain syndrome as a result of his original work injury. The restrictions precluded him from his past employment. The insurance company eventually started to deny paying for his medical treatment. We fought back against the denials, and we were ultimately able to secure a settlement in the amount of $168,500, which helped cover future medical expenses, wage loss, and potentially re-training.
