$268,758 for Mechanic Hurt at Work
Attorney Tom Teodori recently attended a Maryland Workers’ Compensation hearing that resulted in an award of $268,758 for our client. Our client was employed as a diesel mechanic when he sustained back injuries while working on a fire truck. He underwent years of medical care, including physical therapy, pain relief injections, medications, and surgery on his lower back. Unfortunately, the medical treatment failed to provide our client with the necessary relief to return to his employer of more than 25 years. Taking into consideration his injuries and the impact they had on his ability to earn wages, the Workers’ Compensation Commission found that our client had an 85 percent disability, which equaled $268,758 in benefits.
