Near the end of October 2020, a workers’ compensation claim from another attorney’s office was passed to Brown & Brown. This client had been injured in June of 2019 and was still waiting for compensation.
The accident occurred while the client, an 18-wheeler driver, ran into the back of a small pickup truck after the driver of the smaller vehicle slammed on his brakes. The accident resulted in injury to our client’s back which, following multiple doctor’s visits and diagnostics, resulted in a recommendation of physical therapy and temporary work restrictions. However, by the time we were given this client, he had not seen compensation for lost wages or medical expenses.
Within nine months, the workers’ compensation lawyers at Brown & Brown were able to secure of settlement of more than $101,000 for this client. The settlement included compensation for all related medical expenses along with payment for wages that had been lost during his short recovery period.
