$1,406,000 Long Term Disability Insurance Appeal

This was a long-term disability case in which my client had been forced to stop working due to the consequences of having a large tumor removed from their brain. This person had suffered neurocognitive deficits as a consequence, often forgetting things and being more emotionally susceptible. Though my client had received benefits since 2006, the insurance company never stopped trying to get rid of them. Their benefits were terminated years ago, and they overcame that hurdle. In January 2016, their benefits were terminated again. They turned to us. The insurer denied benefits this time because: they claimed my client stopped taking their meds; they claimed my client was neurologically fine, and; they claimed my client’s problems were related to an eye condition.

My client was still taking their medicines; they had just changed to an online pharmacy. An understandable error by the insurer. Their claim that my client was fine neurologically was fictitious. Absolutely fake. We know this because there had been 8 previous neuropsychological examinations. All unanimously agreed our client was disabled for life. One mentioned a possible eye problem, but that was summarily disproved. In short, the insurance company denied benefits without any supporting evidence. It created tremendous stress in their life for 10 months while we got the situation sorted.

Before the deadline even came up, the insurer reinstated benefits, no additional questions asked. They were handily defeated. My client was very fortunate to have the unanimous support of their family and husband, all of whom helped to put together hundreds of pages of supporting documents for their appeal. Our client is on track to receive more than $1,406,000 in benefits while she remains disabled.

This is a very odd story of a man who was injured by a rock. While pushing a wheelbarrow, our client fell over a large rock, landing with his back directly on a pointed rock which injured his spinal cord. He went to the hospital and was released. He returned to the hospital 5 days later with a ...

This is a very odd story of a man who was injured by a rock. While pushing a wheelbarrow, our client fell over a large rock, landing with his back directly on a pointed rock which injured his spinal cord. He went to the hospital and was released. He returned to the hospital 5 days later with a temperature, but was again released. He returned a third time shortly thereafter, and this time the doctors realized there was a serious problem. By this point, he couldn’t walk and had trouble urinating. It turns out there had been an epidural abscess exerting pressure on his spinal cord. This abscess had gone undiagnosed for days, wreaking havoc on his spinal cord. Our client, as a consequence, still cannot walk to this day. We alleged that this was medical malpractice, and were able to help secure a settlement for our client in the amount of $1,050,000.

More than $700,000 Workers Compensation Medical Benefits Reimbursement

This case was a worker’s compensation claim. Because it is ongoing, we cannot mention any names. What is important to know is that our client was painting a roof when he touched an electrical wire, and was electrocuted off the roof, falling to the ground below. As a consequence, he suffered severe burn injuries to the majority of his body and fall injuries. He accrued over $811,000 in medical bills. Because he didn’t initially have an attorney, the hospital had billed Medicaid for $50,000 of the coverage, and gave up on the rest. However, that wasn’t very fair. Taxpayers shouldn’t have to pay for what workers compensation insurance is supposed to cover. Hospitals and doctors shouldn’t lose money on a case so an insurance company can profit more. So we set about getting that hospital paid for their valiant, lifesaving efforts. Recently, we convinced Medicaid it didn’t have to pay that $50,000. We also convinced the insurer to pay more than $700,000 to the hospital for past services rendered. Our client was extremely happy his doctors were paid!

Workers’ Compensation Settlement for Paralyzed Teen

This is a truly sad story. Our client was attacked by a hammer-wielding-assailant while working at the outlet mall. It turns out he was targeted because of a past relationship with his assailant’s current girlfriend. The assailant used the claw-side of the hammer to puncture our client’s ...

This is a truly sad story. Our client was attacked by a hammer-wielding-assailant while working at the outlet mall. It turns out he was targeted because of a past relationship with his assailant’s current girlfriend. The assailant used the claw-side of the hammer to puncture our client’s spinal cord in a dressing room ambush. Our client was left with no recourse and no legal way to obtain compensation for his claim. He wasn’t targeted because he was an employee of a store, he was targeted because of his life outside of work. Because of this, he claim wasn’t covered by Workers’ Compensation. However, in spite of that, after long negotiations we were able to obtain $588,500 in lifetime payments to our client as a settlement of all claims. In spite of having no legal way to win, our client still got something for all the he has, and will continue to, endure.

A maintenance man at an apartment complex was tragically killed when he was assisting in an eviction of a resident. This gentleman’s widow hired us to represent her in connection with the death benefits available under the Virginia Workers’ compensation Act. The Virginia Workers’ Compensation statute provides for a maximum 500 week benefit for a death claim when the surviving family members are totally dependent upon the decedent. After calculating the present value of the 500 week benefit, we were able to obtain a lump sum settlement for the widow of $188,000.

Our client was a very successful engineer who was involved in a very minor fender-denter which resulted in her requiring two surgeries to her cervical spine and shoulder. Our client had a tough case involving serious past accidents as well as natural degenerative changes. The insurance carrier’s top offer pretrial was $75,000. We tried the case, and pulled out all the stops. We had experts testify as to the surgery, and exhibits detailing how our client’s cervical spine was fused together in two locations. Our client walked away with $152,000, more than double to top pre-trial offer. To make it all the sweeter, we also won her worker’s compensation case for her and got her months and months of lost wages!

Our client was unloading a truck in mid-december when he slipped on ice and fell, injuring his hip.

This was an automobile accident which occurred in the District of Columbia. Our client was in a vehicle which was stopped in traffic on I-395N when her car was impacted from behind. The driver which caused the accident was on their phone, distracted. My client was taken to the hospital and was left with a facial scar. She incurred some $14,000 in medical bills for her treatment. In the end, the defendant admitted fault and, after intense negotiations, paid $80,000.

Fairfax Motorcycle Accident Settlement

In the Spring of 2007, our client was riding his motorcycle home from work in Fairfax, Virginia. He was driving on a residential street following another car as they approached a curve in the road, where another car was attempting to enter the roadway.

In the Spring of 2007, our client was riding his motorcycle home from work in Fairfax, Virginia. He was driving on a residential street following another car as they approached a curve in the road, where another car was attempting to enter the roadway. While the other driver yielded to the car in front of our client, he did not appreciate the fact that a motorcycle was following that car, and as a result he pulled into traffic directly in front our client, and his motorcycle.

The impact between the car and the motorcycle was severe. Our client was an expert motorcycle mechanic, and had customized his bike to a large degree. Unfortunately, the motorcycle was totaled. Worse was the fact that despite wearing all the required safety equipment available, our client broke his forearm and required surgery. The surgery entailed a metal plate and screws to hold together the unstable fracture. After a number of months the plate and screws were removed, and our client after months of therapy, and two surgeries had finally reached maximum medical improvement. The treating orthopedic surgeon provided our client a 5% permanent partial disability rating. With approximately $23,000 in medical expenses, a 5% permanent partial disability, and approximately $10,000 in lost wages we were able to settle this matter to the satisfaction of our client.

The main issue in this case was the apparent inability of the defendant to appreciate the fact that there was motorcycle approaching him. This is one of the largest factors contributing to motorcycle accidents. Unless people begin to recognize that we share the road with motorcycles, there will undoubtedly be a continued increase in motorcycle accidents in Virginia.
