$158,000 Workers' Compensation Settlement


$158,000 Workers’ Compensation Settlement. A 48-year-old woman sustained injuries to her left and right hands, left thumb, left elbow, and neck during the course of her employment as a case picker. Her doctor diagnosed her with bilateral carpal tunnel syndrome and a disk herniation at C4-5. Thereafter, she underwent a left thumb trapeziectomy, a left ulnar nerve transposition, and a neck fusion at C4-5. Her employer challenged the nature and extent of her permanent partial disability and the reasonableness and necessity of her medical expenses. Our firm obtained a settlement for $158,239.02 representing 30% loss of use of her body as a whole, 20% loss of use of her right hand, 17.5% loss of use of her left hand, 25% loss of use of her left arm, and 65% loss of use of her left thumb.
