Katz Leidman Grossman Wolfe & Freund are devoted to helping the individuals who are injured on-the-job and want compensation for their injuries. Recently, they were able to secure a settlement for a foreman who slipped and fell at the work site. The individual fell and hurt his right shoulder, neck, and right hand. The accident could have been prevented if the ground had been clear of slip hazards, and the foreman wanted recompense for his medical bills.
When the foreman went to his insurance company, the doctor affiliated with the organized opinioned just a 10% scheduled loss of use of the right arm. This would merit a small settlement that would not cover all the recovery time and the physical therapy that this individual may need to do in order to get his arm, shoulder, and neck back to full use. With the help of Katz Leidman Grossman Wolfe & Freund, the foreman was able to finalize a claim at 55% Permanent Partial Disability. This vast improvement from the original settlement will help to comfort him as he recovers from his slip and fall accident.
If you have been injured in a slip and fall accident at a workplace, your insurance company may try to conserve their own funds by giving you a small payment.
