Client Success Story
A woman sustained injuries on-the-job while working as a truck driver and doing highway construction on Highway 169 in St. Peter, MN. The woman suffered low back and neck injuries when she was sitting in her truck and a heavy boulder was dropped into her truck bed. After the injury, she received chiropractic care, physical therapy, and medication management for her back and neck.
While her employer and the insurer acknowledged liability for the low back injury, they denied that the neck injury occurred at work. Our law firm worked with the woman’s doctors to obtain additional medical evidence that showed bulging and degeneration in the woman’s cervical spine consistent with the work injury. Our team demonstrated that her neck impairment and the medical treatment for it were causally related to the work injury and obtained a settlement for our client.
