While at work, Client suffered a shoulder injury by a third-party contractor. The injury required two arthroscopic surgeries. Defendant contested the nature and extent of the injury, as well as the need for surgery.

Client severely injured her ankle when she fell into an unmarked trench in the backyard of a home, while working as a part-time dog-sitter. Homeowner’s insurance carrier denied Client’s third-party personal injury claim, as it argued that the Workers’ Compensation exclusive remedy applied. After convincing defense counsel that Client’s case fit an antiquated, but still valid, exception to the WC exclusive remedy doctrine, the case settled for the $500,000 policy limit available to the homeowner.
