Client Success Story
A man who worked for a large contractor contacted Fields Law Firm for help after he suffered a crush injury to his right hand while performing maintenance on a skidloader. The counterweight on the skidloader was loose, which caused the skidloader to fall and crush our client’s hand. He suffered a serious cut, which doctors stitched up the same day. However, he continued to have significant pain in his hand that interfered with his ability to perform his job. Eventually his employer laid him off.
Later, doctors discovered he had adhesions on his tendons in his hand and recommended surgery. Fields Law Firm helped the man bring a claim for wage loss benefits and the recommended surgery. The workers’ compensation insurer eventually agreed to pay for the surgery. Our workers’ compensation attorneys were able to secure a settlement for our client, which included past and future wage loss benefits. As part of the settlement, the workers’ compensation insurer remains responsible for our client’s future medical treatment related to his right hand.
