Workers' compensation formOur attorneys are committed to fighting for the rights of individuals who get hurt at work. We know that on-the-job injuries can result in hefty medical fees and rehabilitation needs, as well as other expenses that can follow a person for the rest of their life and destroy their financial future. The only thing that can help injured workers move forward is getting the most out of their claims.

At the Law Offices of Humberto Izquerido, Jr., PC, our mission is to help those injured in workplace accidents obtain the maximum compensation they deserve. In keeping with that mission, we are proud to announce that we recently settled a claim for 2.5 million dollars.

Our client was involved in a serious motor vehicle accident while driving a van for his job. He made a left turn and failed to yield to an oncoming tractor-trailer. His van rolled several times before landing on its wheels. When it came to a stop, it quickly ignited and caught on fire. Our client was unable to exit the flaming vehicle on his own and required help from brave passersby.

This traumatic accident left our client with severe burns to more than 50 percent of his body. He also suffered cracked ribs and a punctured lung and was placed in a medically-induced coma at Grady Memorial Hospital. He required extensive medical treatment and ongoing care.

Our client was determined to be at fault in the accident. However, he was still entitled to benefits as an injured worker. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. In other words, the question of fault is not usually at issue when figuring out an injured employee's eligibility for benefits.

We were able to properly value our client’s claim and fight for the money that he truly deserved. In these situations, it is not usual for insurance companies to delay, devalue, and deny claims. However, with the help of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney, wins are possible.
