Lake Mary Workers’ Compensation Settlement
In 2008, this female injured worker was severely injured when she was working for a nursing home. She injured her cervical spine and right shoulder. The Judge was presented evidence of the severity of this lady’s medical condition along with testimony from a vocational expert. When this information was considered in its totality, the Judge found that this injured worker was unable to return to gainful employment, and awarded Permanent and Total Disability benefits that will equate to over $1,000,000 on payout. Of note was the fact that this lady also suffered from depression related to this work accident, and the insurance company attempted to delay the trial because the injured worker was still treating or her depression and had not reached maximal medical improvement. The Judge agreed that it would have been a waste of time and futile to put off a decision when the evidence clearly showed that this lady was totally disabled from her orthopedic injuries alone.
