Based on recent jury verdict/settlement research, Mr. Eames obtained one of the largest annual recoveries for an automobile negligence victim in Rock Island County.”
“After his client suffered injuries to both of his hands on the job, requiring surgeries, Mr. Eames brought the claim to hearing before the Illinois Workers’ Compensation Commission. The insurance company argued the injuries were the result of unrelated issues; the injured worker was capable of full-duty work; and the surgeries were not medically necessary. At hearing, the Arbitrator agreed with the insurance company. However, Mr. Eames filed an immediate appeal, arguing to the reviewing Commission that the Arbitrator’s decision was against the greater weight of the evidence. Commissioners agreed, reversing the decision of the Arbitrator and awarding all claimed benefits to the injured worker. These benefits include payment for all related medical expenses (past and future) and over a year of disability pay.”
