Workplace Injury Case
Welder Compensated for Lost Wages & Medical Bills After Shoulder Injury
In 2009, Peter Henderson was working as a welder at a local power plant. When loosening a bolt on a piece of machinery, his arm suddenly gave out severely injuring his left shoulder.
Mr. Henderson was in and out of work as he tried to keep his job notwithstanding the pain. He finally had to stop working on May 1, 2010.
Peter has had four surgeries on his shoulder, an osteotomy in 2010, carpal tunnel release with the tendons on July 31, 2010, resurfacing on April 18, 2011 and a total left shoulder replacement and reconstructive surgery on December 16, 2011. He has significant limitations with his shoulder and takes narcotic medication, which includes oxycodone and morphine, which severely impacts his ability to function.
We were able to successfully obtain replacement of his lost wages and medical bills through the worker’s compensation system. We also reached a substantial settlement of his claim while Mr. Henderson retrains to work in a new occupation given his injuries.
