Healthcare workers receive comp benefits | Work Injury Lawyer | $135,000 Workers Compensation Settlement

January 27, 2014

A nurse was pushed by a patient and sustained injuries to her cervical spine, thoracic spine and left knee. The injured worker continued working in a light duty capacity. However, she began receiving partial disability benefits after being forced to give up her second job because there was no light duty available. After declining a settlement offer made by the adjuster, the injured worker was told that her light duty job with the time-of-injury job was being eliminated.

 

Frank N. Ciprero met with the client and in discussing her case, discovered that the employer had been underpaying her partial disability benefits for over a year. Mr. Ciprero filed a penalty petition and ultimately settled the case for $135,000.00.
