DISCLAIMER: The results are specific to the facts and legal circumstances of each of the clients’ cases and should not be used to form an expectation that the same results could be obtained for other clients in similar matters without reference to the specific factual and legal circumstances of each client’s case.Markhoff & Mittman PC recently settled the matter of a Nursing Asistant who injured herself while lifiting a patient. This particular injury can be career ending since many nursing assistants are required to lift and move immobile patients. Our client actually herniated a disc (“slipped disc”) as a result of this accident and received over two years of benefits (medical and monetary). However, she decided to move on with her life and we were able to secure an additional lump sum settlement of 7 years worth $78,500.00.
