Settlement - Workers' Compensation

The Petitioner – a CTA bus driver – accidentally ran over a pedestrian who fell into the bus path. The pedestrian was seriously injured, yet the Petitioner sustained no physical injuries, but suffered from PTSD. Petitioner was unable to return to work as a driver per his psychologist’s orders. Because of his readily transferrable skills, Petitioner was highly employable so there was no wage loss. GWC lawyer Donn LaHaie was able to settle the case for $125,000.
