GWC Injury Lawyers is pleased to announce a settlement of $350,000 reached by attorney Donn LaHaie on behalf of an injured client in a contested workers compensation case.
Our client is an Illinois mechanic who injured his leg and both hands while working. Although the workers compensation insurance company easily accepted his leg injury, it disputed and denied both hand injuries per a utilization review of prescribed treatment.
The review allowed the insurance company to evaluate our clients treatment in order to determine if it was medically necessary. The mechanics treating physician is a noted hand surgeon who recommended surgery on both hands, which suffered repetitive trauma injuries.
Despite the dispute, our client chose to push forward to try to reach a settlement with the insurance company. After rebutting several low offers, LaHaie was able to successfully reach a reasonable settlement of $350,000 for the injured mechanic.
LaHaie exclusively practices workers compensation law at GWC Injury Lawyers and has handled hundreds of claims on behalf of injured Illinois workers.
