Every year our firm negotiates numerous six figure settlements of workers’ compensation claims on behalf of those who have suffered serious injuries at work. Because each claim or case presents a different set of circumstances that directly impact the value of each case, including different injuries, varying impact of injury on our clients’ lives, insurance carriers, judges, average weekly wage, etc, it is not possible for a workers’ compensation or personal injury attorney to tell you that your claim is worth the same as a prior client’s claim.
Because each and every case is unique, our firm chooses not to publish the settlement amount of workers’ compensation cases we handle because we do not believe it is a fair measuring stick for our future clients. Our firm prefers to rely on the outstanding reputation we have worked tirelessly to earn with our former satisfied clients, labor organizations and members of the legal community by continuously achieving terrific outcomes for our clients, rather than displaying large settlements on our website in an attempt to impress future clients.
Examples of some of the cases we have handled in the past few years which have resulted in multiple six figure settlements include the following:
- Lump sum settlement for union pipefitter who suffered knee injury at work causing need for total knee replacement surgery.
