$182,000 for Train Operator Who Fell at Work
Ben Boscolo successfully convinced a Prince George’s County jury to award $182,000 in workers’ compensation benefits to our client who suffered a pinched nerve when he fell at his job as a train operator. After the accident, our client underwent rehabilitation and returned to work as a bus operator. During his workers’ compensation hearing, our client made an incorrect statement regarding his work status and, as a result, was terminated by his employer and was only awarded $28,270 in benefits. Mr. Boscolo appealed the jury’s decision. The result was an award of $182,000 in permanent partial disability benefits. It was another great outcome for a ChasenBoscolo client.
