After a full trial in 2011, a young 30 year old injured employee was awarded temporary total disability benefits due to his permanent ankle/foot injury that was incurred after he slipped and fell on ice while working. The Insurance company refused to place the injured employee voluntarily on workers compensation benefits. We filed a claim, had a trial and won! These benefits are paid for 3 years only, and if the employee remains disabled, a new claim must be filed for permanent disability benefits. Recently, after filing for permanent disability benefits, the Court awarded total and permanent disability benefits. Additionally, this past September, 2011, insurance company paid approximately $27,000.00 for his loss of function and deformity as a result of this work injury.
