$165,000 for Slip and Fall Injury at Work

Jan 08, 2000 | admin

We represented a laborer who injured his lower back when he slipped and fell in a garage. The Maryland Workers’ Compensation Commissionfound that he had a 55 percent disability despite the fact that he was unable to work. We appealed to the Circuit Court for Prince George’s County, and the Court found that he was permanently and totally disabled. This resulted in our client receiving weekly benefits for the remainder of his life. The present value of this award is in excess of $165,000.
