$255,000 for BWO Client Injured at Work
BWO recovered $255,000 in workers compensation benefits for a client who was injured at work. Our client fell at work and suffered a compound fracture that extended into his knee joint. We pursued a claim for permenent total disability benefits for our client, which total 66% of his average weekly wage for the rest of his life. The client also had pre-existing back problems and the employer argued that the Missouri Second Injury Fund was responsible. We invested thousands of dollars and prepared the workers’ compensation case for final hearing. The case settled before the hearing for $195,000 paid by employer and $60,000 paid by the Second Injury Fund. We were happy to get a good result for a great client.
