Every workplace has its own hazards. One of our law firm’s past clients worked as a UPS delivery agent. He potentially faced a new workplace hazard with every new delivery, depending on fluctuations in the weather, changes in traffic conditions, or other variables.
During one wintry residential delivery, our client slipped on some ice left that had been left on a sidewalk. There was no denying that our client required a doctor’s care and workers’ compensation benefits. However, a dispute arose over the amount of benefits after his employer hired an independent medical examiner that diagnosed the man as rehabilitated.
Since our client was still under his own doctor’s orders, he consulted with our attorneys. In our client’s own words, he knew he was in the right hands from day one. We reviewed the man’s claim and fought to get him the full amount of workers’ compensation benefits that he needed in order to regain health and return to work.
