Chicago Workers Compensation Attorney Settles 5 Cases for $1 Million Total
Posted on behalf of Goldberg Weisman Cairo on Aug 21, 2013 in Workers' Compensation

This allows our clients to rest assured that they will receive the maximum compensation for their injuries.
Just this past month, one of our workers’ compensation attorneys was able to settle five cases for a total of nearly $1 million dollars. In one of those cases, our experienced Illinois workers’ compensation attorney represented a 43-year-old union laborer who sustained injuries to his neck and back, including a fractured vertebra, when he was struck by a tree branch while on the job at a construction site.
Despite the fact that the union laborer suffered a debilitating injury on the job and was entitled to weekly benefits while he was off work, the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance unjustly suspended those benefits. Eventually, the workers’ compensation lawyer at GWC was able to settle the laborer’s case for $346,000 based upon his claim of permanent wage loss, in addition to forcing the insurance company to pay toward the disputed weekly benefits.
This case is a perfect example of how the Chicago injury attorneys at Goldberg Weisman Cairo will fight to make sure that all of their clients get maximum compensation for their injuries.
