SUCCESSFUL DEFENSE AGAINST ADDITIONAL ALLOWANCES – THOMAS & CO. SAVES THE CLIENT OVER $30,000.00

The Claimant was a city driver who injured his low back as a result of a work incident where he was unloading boxes of freight. The Employer/Client initially certified this claim for the condition of Lumbar Strain/Sprain.

The Claimant then requested nearly a year of Temporary Total Disability compensation benefits. Additionally, he also requested that the claim be additionally allowed for the conditions of Disc Protrusion L4-S1 with Nerve Root Compression and Posterior Disc Protrusion L4-5 with Stenosis and Marked Left Foraminal Stenosis.

THOMAS & CO. RESULTS

Thomas & Co. took the claim. We thoroughly reviewed the claim, obtained necessary medical documentation, obtained a critical defense Independent Medical Examination, and developed legal, medical, and factual arguments in support of the Employer/Client’s position that the additional allowances were degenerative in nature and not due to the industrial injury and, therefore, the Claimant was not entitled to over $30,000.00 in Temporary Total Disability benefits.

Thomas & Co. was successful in its arguments before the Industrial Commission. The Industrial Commission denied the requests for the additional allowances, as well as, the request for the Temporary Total Disability benefits.

The Employer/Client Saved At Least $30,000.00 As A Direct Result of the Requests for Additional Allowances and Temporary Total Disability Benefits Being DENIED
