$352,000 WORKERS' COMPENSATION AWARD RECEIVED FOR INJURED WELDER IN COMPLEX MEDICAL CAUSATION CASE. (Name withheld at the request of the client.)
Client was exposed to welding fumes causing him a permanent pulmonary condition (asthma) and ongoing surgical treatment for removal of work related lipomas (skin lesions). Liability for both of these conditions was denied by the workers' compensation insurer. The case proceeded to trial and the judge found all of the injured worker's conditions to be covered by workers' compensation which eventually resulted in compensation paid to the injured worker of $352,000. Compensation Judge Nancy Olson stated that:
"This case involved very complex issues of medical causation. Mr. Rodgers' expertise was essential in obtaining this positive result for his client. This is an extremely complex workers' compensation claim which required a time commitment from Mr. Rodgers' far in excess of that normally seen in litigated workers' compensation cases."
