BWO fought hard to get its client a Workers’ Compensation Award of permanent and total disability worth nearly a million dollars due to his back injury. The Employer and Insurance Company challenged the Award in every way possible.  They appealed to both the Labor and Industrial Relations Commission (LIRC) and the Missouri Court of Appeals in Springfield, Missouri. BWO fought them every step of the way.

Thanks to BWO’s hard work, the LIRC and the Missouri Court of Appeals agreed with BWO and affirmed the Award worth nearly a million dollars.  After losing every challenge, the Employer and Insurance Company paid over $200,000.00 to our client in back benefits he was owed and agreed to pay him over $500 per week for the rest of his life.  A great result!
