Attorney Ned Abrahamsen recently secured a lump sum workers compensation settlement for a client who was injured on the job over five (5) years ago. The lump sum settlement represented payment for all future wage and medical claims.
The client was a school teacher who sustained a work injury when he was injured by the actions of a student. The incident caused serious injury to his lower back which required him to undergo several surgeries.
While recuperating from the last surgery, he was unable to return to work but the workers compensation insurance company refused to pay for his lost wages. While the case was being litigated, the insurance company gave in and settled the case for a substantial lump sum.
