A Successful Defense of a Permanent Total Disability WC Claim

Weiss Law Office, S.C. (“WLO”) was recently victorious in a Labor and Industry Review Commission’s (“LIRC”) review of a Worker’s Compensation case.  Following a four-day hearing, involving two separate dates of injury and two different injuries: a lumbar and a cervical injury –  both of which required surgery, the Administrative Law Judge concluded that the employee was permanently and totally disabled as the result of her cervical work injury – the injury claim that attorneys from WLO were defending.  WLO’s client faced more than $1 million in exposure.  After briefing by Charles Kramer and Monte Weiss, LIRC concluded that the employee only suffered a temporary strain / sprain injury and had fully recovered from that work injury.  The entire award against WLO’s client was reversed.
