Client Success Story
Our law firm represented a man from South St. Paul who was electrocuted while he was working on a control box. The equipment malfunctioned and sent an electric shock though both of his hands. He went to the emergency room where they treated him for deep electrical burns. The doctors also sent him to see cardiologists and a Neurologist to determine whether there was further damage. Workers’ Compensation agreed with his claim initially, but then sent him to see an Independent Medical Evaluation (IME) doctor.
Although the IME doctor’s report stated that the neurological damage was not the result of the electrocution, our construction accident lawyers negotiated with the insurance company for settlement fees which covered the injured worker’s medical expenses and wage loss from the work injury.
