AG, a 58 year old housekeeper, was a long time employee of an international hotel chain when she suffered a work related injury. While pulling sheets from a bed, she extended her arm, and felt a sharp pain in her shoulder. Following surgery, restrictions were placed on her lifting. In spite of searching for work, AG could not get a job. After a lengthy period of negotiation, AG accepted a $200,000 settlement which included $35,000 for future medical treatment.
