Electrical Worker recovers for torn shoulder and heat exhaustion

Lear Werts successfully settled two workers’ compensation cases for an electrical shop worker that suffered a right shoulder injury and heat exhaustion while working in a hot shop during the summer. The client’s employer initially denied responsibility for the heat exhaustion claiming that it was the product of a virus, or something unrelated to the client’s job. The firm assisted the worker in securing a necessary shoulder surgery and then negotiated a satisfactory five-figure settlement to compensate the worker for his permanent disability from both cases.  The settlement also helped the client cover the medical bills the employer initially failed to pay for.
