No Offer Before Trial = Award of Over $225,000.00 in Benefits

Written by Brent Eames

February 16, 2017

In a claim for benefits pursuant to the Workers’ Compensation Act, Attorney Brent Eames represented an injured worker who suffered serious and debilitating bilateral knee injuries as a result of the repetitive stress caused by his work activities. The Respondent completely disputed his claim from the outset and refused to pay anything whatsoever towards his claim for workers’ compensation benefits. The Petitioner ultimately underwent surgery to each injured knee and was completely disabled from working for 67 weeks while he underwent care and treatment. The case remained 100% disputed all the way up to the doorsteps of trial, and the Respondent refused to offer any money towards potential settlement.

At hearing, Mr. Eames successfully argued and established that the petitioner’s injuries are causally connected to his work activities thereby securing an award which included payment of all related medical expenses, disability pay for the duration of the petitioner’s temporary disability, and an award for permanent impairment. This award exceeded $225,000.00 in related benefits.

Attorney Brent Eames never stops fighting on behalf of his clients. While many attorneys would have simply given up, Mr. Eames continued to fight and push the claim forward until his client received all owed compensation.
