Medical Care for Work-Related Back Injury

On October 12, 2011, Joseph Yahr successfully tried a case in the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County, Maryland. Our client was employed as an assistant manager for a linen company and suffered neck and back injuries from lifting a heavy box at work. Her back injuries were not mentioned in medical records for more than a month after her work accident. As a result, Travelers Insurance refused to accept the back problems as related to the work injury and refused treatment. Even though the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commission ruled our client’s back condition was not related to the work accident, Mr. Yahr refused to accept that result. He filed an appeal for our client and successfully convinced a jury that her back injury was work related. Thanks to ChasenBoscolo’s representation, our client doesn’t have to worry about who is going to pay her medical bills—Mr. Yahr made sure Travelers Insurance will. Our client was delighted that she got a Lawyer that Cared!
