$67,500 Settlement For Injured Shoulder at Work

Juan aged 73, injured his shoulder while working for his employer.  He learned after several months that he had a rotator cuff tear.  The insurer delayed his care so long that his rotator cuff could no longer be repaired.  Juan could not return to his job, but the workers compensation insurer hired a doctor who stated his shoulder problems were due to old age. Chris obtained records and opinions to support Juan’s case.  With that evidence, he was able to obtain a settlement of $67,500.  In addition to this, all future medical care for his shoulder will be paid by workers compensation.
