Pipe Manufacturer Collects Permanent Total Disability in Workers' Compensation Claim: $891,750 Lump Sum

The Chicago Workers' Compensation attorneys at Lipkin & Apter were contacted by TK, a 40-year-old pipe manufacturer who came to us with a history of Achilles (heel) tendon soreness in both feet. TK alleged that he aggravated his left Achilles tendon condition due to repetitive walking, climbing, and lifting at work and required surgery. Shortly after the surgery, TK became unable to work and was deemed by his doctors to be permanently disabled from work. Moreover, TK's employer denied TK's Workers' Compensation claims that his repetitive trauma injuries were caused or contributed to by his job. TK's employer refused to pay TK any Workers' Compensation benefits, his time off of work, medical expenses or his injuries, and the case went to trial. The testimony of TK's treating physicians proved compelling, and we successfully obtained a verdict in TK's favor. Finally, after seven (7) years of litigation, TK received the compensation to which he was deserving-back pay of TTD beginning with the date of injury, medical expenses of $171,000 and permanent disability paying $664.20 weekly for life. Besides, we were able to obtain nearly all of TK's life expectancy in a lump sum settlement amounting to $891,750, which will allow TK to live with a measure of economic security.
