$335,378.10 Workers' Compensation Settlement
Attorney Dan Siegel negotiated a lump sum workers' compenstion settlement of $335,378.10 for an executive injured in a work-related car accident. The settlement, paid by the workers' compensation insurance company, was particularly noteworthy because the injured worker's status had changed and he had only limited future benefits available following an impairment rating evaluation (IRE). The carrier agreed to settle the case because they were concerned about the possibility of losing the case on appeal because Attorney Dan Siegel had uncovered a procedural error.
Attorney Siegel named a Super Lawyer in the area of workers’ compensation for the eighth consecutive year.
