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 100% permanent loss of visual function in his left eye as a result of the accident.
