Firm Recovers More than $1 Million in a Week

Our firm wants to celebrate our most recent achievements. We have recovered more than $1 million in compensation for the injuries of our clients, all in the course of a week.

The first case we settled concerned a water truck driver working in the oil fields of Montana and North Dakota. Our client was severely injured when he was run off the road by another commercial truck. His claim was initially filed in North Dakota, where the benefits are less favorable for workers. We transferred his claim to Montana and managed to get his claim accepted by the Montana workers’ compensation insurer. Our client wasn't required to pay back any of his workers’ compensation benefits after we also obtained a favorable third-party settlement against the at-fault truck driver, which he would have under North Dakota law. We managed to get $1,050,000 for this client to help him pay for medical costs and lost wages.

Our second case concerned a motor vehicle accident. One worker was involved in a collision during the course of his employment. He filed a workers’ compensation claim and a third-party claim against the at-fault driver. We were able to settle the case before the trial even began, recovering $1,125,000 for our client.

The third case revolved around an undocumented Mexican worker who was severely injured in a construction accident. He was initially told he had no means to gain compensation for his injuries because of his immigration status. However, we managed to get him workers’ compensation coverage for his extensive rehabilitation costs, wage loss, and medical treatment. We were also able to obtain a third-party claim against the general contractor of the construction project. In total, we recovered $1,875,000 for our client.
