Attorney Hansford Settles Workers’ Comp Case for $1.7 Million
When you’re injured on the job – especially in a traumatic auto accident – it can feel overwhelming to consider all of your future expenses and needs. You may worry about paying for medical bills and time off work, not to mention recovering from your experiences. That was exactly the case with one of our recent workers’ compensation clients, an Alabama service technician who was involved in a truck accident with an 18-wheeler.
After sustaining life-threatening injuries in the wreck, our client had to be extricated from his vehicle by trained emergency personnel at the scene. Ultimately, the first responders and hospital staff were unable to save his arm from permanent damage, and our client required a left-arm amputation in order to survive the ordeal.
As a result of these catastrophic injuries, our client was facing an understandable amount of stress. Filing for workers’ compensation, he sought permanent disability benefits to cover the costs of his current and future medical care, as well as the necessary devices and aids he needed for the amputation. Representing him on this claim was our attorney Nathaniel F. Hansford, who was able to secure a $1,726,824.41 settlement to cover these needs, which included a medical annuity.
