Client in his mid-50s was working road construction when his left arm was unfortunately caught in the tailgate of a dump truck. His crush injury resulted in severe chronic nerve pain that necessitated the ongoing use of Ketamine pain cream and a sling. The Pitts Law Firm successfully obtained medical and vocational evidence that the client was permanently totally disabled due to the last injury alone and argued for a higher average weekly wage due to absences. The case was settled with Employer/Insurer for $275,000 in permanent total disability benefits. A settlement was also reached with the Second Injury Fund for permanent partial disability benefits.
