Our client, an employee at Georgia Power, returned to work after the severe burn wounds he suffered in a workplace accident had healed. But he began having severe “pins and needles” sensations in his legs and could no longer do his job. The insurance company attributed the man’s inability to work to a pre-existing condition that he’d developed as a child. Doctors determined that nerve damage from the burns caused the “pins and needles” sensation. The insurance company said the injury was catastrophic and awarded our client $475,000.00. The client also was able to have workers’ compensation pay his medical bills for two additional years.
Every case is different and results depend on their specific circumstances. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome.
