Our client had two dates of accident while working for a local county. The first was in 2007, when he was involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered injuries to his neck, shoulders, left arm and hand with tingling sensations as well as headaches. In 2008, our client suffered another motor vehicle accident with injuries to his neck, low back, legs and left shoulder and arm with tingling sensations, as well as headaches.
Over the course of the case, our client was able to secure medical care and treatment for the claimant by way of a gym membership as recommended by his treating pain management physician, an ergonomic evaluation of the claimant’s work place including an ergonomic work chair as recommended by his treating physician, and various other medical tests and treatments.
Our client attended several mediations and was scheduled for a final hearing when the parties were able to schedule a private mediation and resolve all outstanding issues and cancel the final hearing before the Judge.
