Client was hired as a driver in 2013. While inspecting her truck, she fell on ice which resulted in back and neck pain and later tingling in both arms and down one leg due to her discs putting pressure on her nerves. We learned that the employer routinely furnished ice grips for new employees, but they did not issue them to the client.
By using “issue mediation,” HammondTownsend was able to position this case for settlement. It settled for $300,000.
