Recently, Portner & Shure recovered $115,000 for its client in a workers’ compensation case. Our client was working on a jobsite when another person operating a skit 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.
