Lawrence & Associates Get a Prisoner Temporary Total Disability (TTD) and Surgery for an Accident That Happened While He Was Working

Posted on Thursday, April 9th, 2015 at 2:57 pm    

prisoner work programEveryday employees are injured while on the job and everyday employers and insurance companies try to deny those injuries have happened on the job because they are trying to minimize the value of claims. Our goal is to help our clients get the medical care they need to recover as much as possible. We want to share a recent case we handled to give you an idea of what we can do for our clients. We will supply as many details as possible while still respecting our clients need for privacy.

The Situation

Our client is a prisoner in the Kentucky state prison system. Shortly before he was incarcerated (for unrelated charges), he was injured at his work in Covington, Kentucky when a box fell from a high shelf and struck his shoulder. The Workers’ Compensation Carrier refused to provide medical treatment or Temporary Total Disability because it claimed our client, as a prisoner, was a ward of the prison system and would have to get treatment and other benefits that way. Unfortunately, the prison system also denied responsibility and client was left without medical care.

What We Did

At Lawrence & Associates, we believe everyone has rights under the laws of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. It did not matter that our client was a prisoner. We took his claim and filed it, proving to the Administrative Law Judge that our client required surgery related to his workplace injury.

The Result

Not only did we get surgery approved, but we also made the Workers’ Compensation carrier pay Temporary Total Disability (TTD) to our client while he was incarcerated. Our client is currently undergoing physical therapy and sending his TTD checks home to his wife and children.

Lawrence & Associates Get a Settlement for a Client After His Employer Denied Treatment and Refused To Pay Temporary Total Disability

Posted on Friday, April 3rd, 2015 at 9:29 am    

lifting heavy itemsEveryday employees are injured while on the job and everyday employers and insurance companies try to deny those injuries have happened on the job because they are trying to minimize the value of claims. Our goal is to help our clients get the medical care they need to recover as much as possible. We want to share a recent case we handled to give you an idea of what we can do for our clients. We will supply as many details as possible while still respecting our clients need for privacy.

The Situation

Our client injured his back and neck lifting heavy equipment while working for his employer in Florence, Kentucky. Because he had a neck injury years beforehand, his employer denied all his treatment and refused to pay him Temporary Total Disability (TTD). He became desperate, unable to pay for his medical bills and unable to get treatment, although his doctor was recommending an immediate surgery. He also had no income, and his wife’s income alone was not enough to support their family.

What We Did

Lawrence & Associates filed our client’s claim and asked the Administrative Law Judge for an immediate hearing to determine whether our client was entitled to have the employer’s Workers’ Compensation carrier pay for his medical bills, and whether our client was entitled to TTD payments. It was crucial that we get our client’s claim decided immediately because he was in dire straits and was thinking of filing bankruptcy so his home wouldn’t be foreclosed on.

The Result

Lawrence & Associates won the claim and got our client the treatment he needed. He is still treating today and hopes to make a full recovery. Also, we forced the employer’s Workers’ Compensation carrier to pay back all of the TTD that our client should have been paid from the date he was first injured, and he was able to use that money to pay off or catch up the debts that had been troubling him.

Lawrence & Associates Gets a Workers’ Compensation Settlement For a Client With Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (CRPS)

Posted on Tuesday, December 30th, 2014 at 1:48 pm    

Complex Regional Pain SyndromeEveryday employees are injured while on the job and everyday employers and insurance companies try to deny those injuries have happened on the job because they are trying to minimize the value of claims. Our goal is to help our clients get the medical care they need to recover as much as possible. We want to share a recent case we handled to give you an idea of what we can do for our clients. We will supply as many details as possible while still respecting our clients need for privacy.

The Situation

Our client worked for a Northern Kentucky cable installation company. One day, while installing cable, he felt a pop in his shoulder. That pop was an injury to his nervous system caused by physical exertion. As a result of the injury, our client developed Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Type 1, also known as Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy. This debilitating condition caused our client to be unable to use his arm, and caused the arm to be extremely painful to the touch. Despite being diagnosed by both his treating doctor and the company’s doctor, our client could not get the company to provide full benefits for him.

What We Did

Lawrence & Associates filed our client’s claim with the Kentucky Department of Workers’ Claims right away. We have a lot of experience with CRPS sufferers, and we knew that this type of claim does not get a good result without providing a great deal of proof for the Administrative Law Judge and company to consider. Our attorneys needed to dig through every medical record and interview every witness to prove our client’s injury was work related. Further, because CRPS is so debilitating, we knew we would have to prove permanent impairment so our client had steady income to live off of until he reaches social security retirement age.

The Result

We reached a settlement with the company’s carrier for over $500,000, which was divided into money used to replace our client’s lost wages and money used to pay for our client’s future medical needs. This settlement allowed our client to pay off all of his family’s outstanding debts, including their mortgage, so they could live on a single family income. It also insured that our client would get the medical treatment he needs to live a happier, and more relatively pain free life.
