Eric’s client seriously injured his head, left shoulder and neck when the chair he was sitting in at work fell backwards. The injuries were severe and required shoulder and neck surgeries. Although the injured worker recovered from his head injury, he was still left with symptoms and limitations in his shoulder and neck. Despite returning to work with restrictions following the shoulder surgeries, his employment was terminated. The workers’ comp insurance company did not accept all the injured body parts, and an action was started by Eric Pearson against the insurance company. After having his client testify, a much more significant settlement than what the insurance company was previously willing to pay, was obtained.
