$143,000 for Injured HVAC Technician

Feb 02, 2000 | admin

Benjamin Boscolo successfully represented an injured HVAC technician before a Prince George’s County jury. Based on the client’s neck, shoulder and hand injuries, the Workers’ Compensation Commission determined he suffered from a 34 percent permanent disability. This resulted in the client being entitled to slightly more than $35,000 in benefits. Mr. Boscolo appealed this decision to a jury, which reversed the Commission’s ruling and found that—as a result of the client’s herniated disc in his neck, tendinitis of his shoulder and carpal tunnel syndrome—he suffered a 68 percent disability, entitling him to more than $143,000 in additional, tax-free benefits.
