May 2015 Case ResultAuthor: Portner & Shure
Recently, Portner & Shure settled a workers’ compensation case for $100,000 for its client who was injured in 2010 while working on a deck using a nail gun. Our client suffered an eye injury when a nail bounced up, struck his safety goggles, and broke a piece of plastic that went into his eye. Doctor examinations revealed a scratched cornea and eventually, he needed surgery because his blurry vision was not improving. After surgery, he was out of work for three months. Doctors found our client to have a 100% permanent loss of visual function in his left eye as a result of the accident.
