Our client was a factory line worker who injured her back while lifting on-the-job. The Employer initially refused to make any payment or provide medical care, claiming that all of the problems were preexisting. The employer made an initial settlement offer of only $4,500. Then BWO got involved. We hired experts, sent our client for medical evaluations, and the prepared the case for hearing. Before the hearing, the employer accepted responsibility and agreed to settle the case for $462,000.
