Trial Victory For Injury With Repetitive Work Injury

Applicant, a 62-year-old plasterer filed a continuous trauma claim alleging injury to his bilateral knees, spine and bilateral upper extremities. Defendants initially denied this claim. As a result, we were forced to try this claim in front of the WCAB. An offer by defendants was made in the amount of $10,000. Said offer was rejected. Post winning Award Rodich Law was successful in getting the applicant temporary disability benefits for 104 weeks along with authorization for total knee replacement.. This matter was subsequently resolved by way of Compromise and Release in the amount of a $340,000 lump sum payment to the applicant.

100%award For Totally Disabled Worker

Applicant was employed has a housekeeper in a nursing facility during the time of the initial stages of COVID. The applicant, along with other cleaners, were employed to go in and clean the facility using solvents and gloves but no protective masks. Subsequent thereto the applicant contracted long term COVID. She went into a coma and thereafter regained consciousness. The applicant was rushed to the emergency room hospital on numerous occasions and almost lost her life more than three times. The insurance company refused to accept the COVID as being industrial. Rodich Law forced this matter to Trial at which point defendants accepted the applicants claim as being work related. Due to the extent of the applicant's injuries the applicant will never be able to work again Rodich Law obtained a 100% Findings and Award for this injured worker insuring her disability and medical benefits for life. The Award has a value of over $1.2 million dollars.

$460,000 Settlement For Post Surgical Applicant

A 50-year-old driver loader unloader who worked for a food service delivery company sustained an injury to his neck and back as a result of repetitive lifting. The insurance company accepted the claim and paid benefits. We were able to get the applicant authorization for a multi-level fusion with positive results. Rodich Law was concerned about the Applicant's future medical needs and rejected offers for resolution at $95,000 and $110,000. After 9 months of continued litigation and medical worked up an offer of $460,000 was accepted in resolution of the claim.

Future Medical Care Settlement

An Applicant who had a previously resolved claim came back to these offices with a desire to settle the future medical component that was left open in her previous claim. Defendants were willing to discuss resolution but needed a Medicare analysis due to the Applicant's age. The insurance company offered $48,000 to resolve the future medical portion of the claim. When we reviewed Medicare's analysis we determined that many of the body parts involved were not taken into account in valuation. The future medical was eventually resolved for $140,000.

Catastrophic Auto vs Motorcycle Accident

One of our clients was catastrophically injured in an auto vs motorcycles accident. as a result of the accident the applicant lost use of his left arm below his shoulder. Multiple medical procedures later and with additional issues to the workers neck and back and the need for life time medical treatment and care. Our client received an 11 million dollar settlement assuring that he will never have to work another day in his life and that all his medical needs will be taken care of.

Injured Worker

Settlement for an injured worker who lost the use of his arm in an auto accident going home from work. Our client was leaving work to make a delivery for his employer. He, unfortunately, entered into a serious auto accident which resulted in the total loss of use of his arm along with neck, back, and psychiatric injuries. Future medical was going to result in multiple surgeries and possible psych hospitalization. Two years of negotiation netted out client a settlement of $11,000,000.

Payments & Treatment for Life

Our client sustained an injury when he was run over by a car. After receiving considerable medical treatment for several years, our client received a civil settlement of $4.75 million. Traditionally when an injured worker receives a civil settlement, the settlement proceeds are deducted against any award they receive in Workers Compensation. At trial, our office was successful in getting Defendant to waive any credit rights they had. Additionally, we were able to get our client an additional $126,000, payments for the rest of his life, and his future medical care covered for the rest of his life.

Pedestrian Accident Victim

Our client was crushed between a tow truck and a pole. as a result of the injury the applicant was hospitalized for 30 days and developed back, neck, and leg problems. the injured worker also developed a blood problem that required lifetime medicine to manage medical issues which arose from thyroid issues that were aggravated by the worker's injury. The insurance company and our firm were able to resolve the continuing costs of the treatment and medicine for over 3 million dollars assuring the worker's medical needs are taken care of for the rest of their life...our continued dedication to protecting our client's future needs allowed us to reject earlier offers of 1 million dollars and raise the offer to the 3 plus million dollar settlement.

Back Injury

A machine operator represented by Rodich Law injured her back while lifting a box of thread at work. After a long and difficult course of treatment and care, it was ultimately decided she needed surgery. The insurance company refused to authorize the back surgery for our client. Rodich Law forced the insurance company to trial on the issue of back surgery. After convincing a Judge to authorize the back surgery the applicant underwent the surgery the applicant’s case eventually settled for $1.5 Million dollars.

Wage and Hour Suit & Injured Back

The injured worker sustained injury on the job to his low back. Initially Defendant offered $5,000 dollars to resolve the case. The offer was rejected and ultimately Rodich Law won at Trial on the issue of injury. Rodich Law then obtained benefits for the injured worker. In review of the wage statements provided by Defendant, Rodich Law noticed wage and hour violations. Our office was able to assist in procuring a $1.2 million settlement on behalf of the injured worker and all similarly situated employees and a $55,000 dollar of the injured workers low back claim.

Lifetime Benefits - Repetitive Work Injuries

The applicant sustained an injury to his neck and back due to repetitive work. The case was originally denied by the insurance company and employer. After successfully overturning the denial, we were able to obtain multiple back surgeries for the applicant. Defendant made an offer of $150,000.00 which was rejected. After taking the case to trial, we were able to obtain an award of 100% which guaranteed the applicant lifetime benefits. Subsequent to our favorable trial decision, we resolved the future medical component for $1.2 million.

Ankle Injury

Rodich Law represented a laborer who fractured his ankle jumping off the back of a work truck. After surgery where two pins were put in his ankle, he developed a diabetic condition which Rodich Law obtained approval for medical treatment and care. The initial offer to settle this case was $75,000.00. After lengthy negotiations, we were able to get the insurance company to increase the offer to $975,000.00.

Automobile Accident - Personal Injury

Our law firm settled a personal injury claim as a result of an automobile accident occurring in July of 2021. In July of 2021 our client was traveling in Agoura Hills California when his car was struck by a negligent driver. Our client sustained injuries to his spine and neck. After 3-4 months of physical therapy our client eventually had a microdiscectomy surgery to his low back. The insurance company attempted to argue that the accident did not lead to the need for the surgery and offered $50,000 to resolve the claim. After, a year of depositions and discovery they increased their offer to $400,000. Believing the value of the claim was greater than that we continued with aggressive case handling and eventually resolved the claim for $975,000 for our client. A truly great result.

Slip & Fall Injury

The manager at a Mimi's Cafe slipped and fell. Defendants initially made little effort to obtain treatment and attempted to minimize the injured workers' claim. many years of treatment and care later the applicant developed bilateral knee problems and had multiple surgeries including back surgery. we were successful in having the applicant declared totally disabled. the injured worker continued to obtain treatment and care. we were successful in having the insurance company pay 100,000 dollars more to move the applicant to a downstairs apartment and pay for increased rent. As the claim went on the insurance company offered $650,000 to settle the claim. We eventually were able to increase the offer to settle the claim for $949,700.

Slip & Fall Injury

A teacher’s aide slipped while on-the-job and suffered what seemed to be a minor injury. However, as time went on, the injury worsened significantly and needed surgeries to address. The insurance company acting as opposition wanted to settle for a minimal amount but our team at Rodich Law is adamant about getting every penny our clients’ need and deserve. It took a bit more than a year but we were able to get her five times as much compensation as she was first offered, ending at a healthy $750,000.

Hand/Arm Injury

Our client injured his arm and hand while working for an apartment complex. Specifically, a grinder cut his arm. The injured worker retained our office and we were able to get him to one of the top surgeons in the state to repair the damage to his arm and hand. Realizing the value of this case, Defendant's offered the injured worker $100,000 in an attempt to settle his claim. The injured worker, based on our guidance, rejected the offer. Rodich Law continued to work up the case and creatively argue a total loss of earnings. This was despite the fact that the injured worker was working at another job. After extensive negotiations, our office was able to get the injured worker a settlement of $685,000 or six times the initial offer.

Continuous Physical Injury

Long term employee gets $600,000 for continuous physical injury over 18 years of work. Our client was a long term employee of a construction company. As a result of his 18 years of hard physical labor, the Applicant required neck surgery, back surgery, and a knee replacement. The insurance companies original offer to settle the case was $75,000. Our aggressive approach at Trial and continued negotiation ended with a settlement of $600,000 for the injured worker who said "he never has to work another day in his life" due to this settlement.

Stress Claim

Our client was a long term employee of an electronic company who was required to work 60 hour weeks. After 15 years of employment, he was fired based upon a down sizing of the company. Rodich Law filed a stress claim on his behalf. The insurance company denied the claim and offered $5,000 to settle the claim in its early stages. We were eventually successful in having the employer accept the stress claim. After two years of temporary disability and treatment and care, we were able to settle the claim for $600,000 making a very happy and satisfied client.

Stroke Case

One of our most interesting cases in a few years just resolved last month. We recently took in a long-term employee who worked for the studios. The injured worker had a stroke at work. The stroke left the applicant partially paralyzed. Defendants immediately denied the claim. The applicant was placed in a skilled nursing facility and eventually sent home in need of therapy and continuing treatment. After review of all components of the applicants, age health status and prolonged litigation parties attempted to resolve the claim at the outset. The original offer on the case from the defendants was $40,000. No response was given. Defendants raised their offer to $100,000 and subsequently to $200,000. Two more attempts were made by defendants one at $350,000 and one at $450,000. We believed the value of the case to be in the range of $550,000-$625,000 and informed defendants of such. Two weeks later this matter was resolved and approved at the WCAB for $600,000.

Torn Achilles Heel

An injured worker tore his Achilles heel while performing his job as a maintenance supervisor. The insurance company took the initial position of denying the case. After proceeding to Trial and winning on the issue of whether the injury happened at work the insurance company agreed to pick up all back temporary disability and surgery. The surgery ended up causing the injured worker to need dialysis. After a very aggressive negotiation, we were successful in getting the applicant a settlement of $500,000.

Head Injury

Our client sustained a head, neck, and back injury when a piece of metal fell on his head. When he reported the injury, he was sent to an Industrial Clinic. The Industrial Clinic dismissed his complaints, released him back to work, and said his case had no merit. Defendant, relying on the medical records from the clinic, offered our client $2,500 dollars. Our office deposed the medical doctor. After completing the doctor's deposition, Rodich Law was able to get the medical report thrown out at Trial. We then procured medical opinions from seven new doctors who noted that our client had a myriad of complaints that were related to the injury. After getting the Applicant two years of benefits, a back surgery, evaluation by seven doctors, and medical care at a rehab center, the parties eventually agreed to settle the claim for $465,000.00 or over 150 times the initial offer.

Slip & Fall Injury

$435,000.00 Applicant passed out from an anxiety attack at work sustaining injuries to her shoulder and neck. To treat for her orthopedic injury, Applicant consumed Tylenol. Over the course of several weeks of taking Tylenol, Applicant developed acute liver complications. Applicant had a considerable amount of pre-existing issues with her liver. Defendant maintained the position that all internal issues were pre-existing and not due to her work injury. We were able to get applicant treatment from a liver specialist, paid for by Defendant, despite Defendant maintaining a denial of the injury. Applicant was released by the liver specialist with no indication that any further treatment was necessary. To resolve all issues, Defendant's offered $50,000.00. Through aggressive litigation, and pushing the matter to trial, we were able to resolve the matter for $435,000.00.
