Recently, Portner & Shure recovered $115,000 for its client in a workers’
compensation case. Our client was working on a job site when another person
operating a skid steer used for paving backed up into his right leg. The
machine ran over our client’s foot and leg, eventually leading to
an amputation below the knee of the right leg. The accident occurred in
Gaithersburg, Maryland, but our client’s employer was a Virginia
company. After extensive negotiations and several medical examinations
being conducted, our attorneys were able to settle the case for $115,000.
