Foot & Toe Injuries
43 year-old man fell from scaffolding at work injuring both feet. His physician diagnosed a right foot calcaneal fracture, posttraumatic arthritis of the right subtalar joint and a left second metatarsal fracture. These injuries kept him off work for 28 weeks, and during this time, he received temporary total disability benefits in the amount of $362.75 per week. His employer disputed the nature and extent of his injuries, whether the fall caused his injuries, his average weekly wage, his temporary total disability, and even responsibility for his medical expenses. Our firm settled his case for $88,076.45 accounting for 40% permanent partial disability to his body, 35 weeks of disputed temporary total disability, and $35,000.00 for future medical expenses. – BD.
