March 2021 SettlementsGWC Injury Lawyers LLC proudly congratulates its hardworking attorneys and staff for having successfully obtained over $4 million in total settlements in March.

Settlements Reflect Wide Variety of GWC’s Cases

In all, GWC’s dedicated lawyers successfully resolved 55 claims in March, in cases representing a wide variety of injuries, fact patterns, professions, and trade affiliations. The total value of the March 2021 settlements included $1,794,924.01 for third-party personal injury lawsuits, $1,829,003.40 for workers’ compensation claims, and $435,360.41 in pre-litigation resolutions.

Some of the many notable settlements include:

  • $1.65 million for a passenger injured in a three-vehicle accident after a newly installed tire fell off the car in which he was riding. GWC successfully recovered damages from the drivers who struck the vehicle and the parties who improperly installed the tire.
  • A $300,000.00 wage differential settlement for a 50-year-old commercial waste hauler and Teamster whose operated shoulder resulted in permanent work restrictions.
  • $220,000.00 for a union rail operator who sustained injuries of the shoulder and back while working for the CTA.
  • A $145,000.00 loss-of-trade settlement for a 63-year-old flight attendant who had to change professions because of an operated shoulder and a knee replacement.
  • $140,000.00 for a union plumber who underwent surgical repair following an on-the-job shoulder injury.
  • $122,080.50 for a union laborer clipped by a passing vehicle while she was working as a flagger on a road construction project.
  • Full six-figure defendant insurance policy limits for a 19-year-old motorist who needed wrist surgery after she was rear-ended in traffic.
