AGGRESSIVE AND EFFECTIVE SETTLEMENT NEGOTIATIONS – THOMAS & CO. SAVED THE CLIENT OVER $1,000,000.00

The Claimant was a yard man working in Cleveland. He sustained a very serious Tibial Plateau Fracture as a result of an accident on a yard horse in the early 1990’s. The Employer/Client was represented by a different law firm in Cleveland. Various hearings were held before the Industrial Commission on the issues of requests for additional conditions being allowed into the claim. Some very significant additional allowances were ultimately allowed by the Industrial Commission. Cross appeals were filed into the Court of Common Pleas.

As a result of the additionally allowed conditions, the Claimant unfortunately had a very long and complicated recovery. He spent over one year in the Cleveland Clinic. It is estimated that the medical bills were in excess of $1,000,000.00.

THOMAS & CO. RESULTS

Because of the hearings which had additionally allowed some of the conditions, the Claimant’s medical bills should have been paid by the Employer/Client. However, the attorney previously representing it failed to properly advise the Employer/Client of the same following the administrative hearings. Due to this and other reasons, the Employer/Client asked Thomas & Co. to represent it in the litigated Court action and the file was pulled and sent to us.

We aggressively defended the Employer/Client in the litigated Court case and were eventually able to effectuate a settlement of the claim. The settlement included having the additional conditions disallowed that were responsible for the $1,000,000.00 in medical bills.

The Employer/Client Saved At Least $1,000,000.00 As A Direct Result of the Aggressive and Effective Settlement Negotiations of Thomas & Co.
