Claimant sustained cumulative injuries to his right and left upper extremities. He underwent right and left carpal tunnel surgeries and right shoulder surgery. As a result of the injury the claimant was required to bid into a lower paying, less physically demanding job. This job paid 25% less than the job he was working at the time of his Iowa Workers’ Compensation injury. The case was filed and set for mediation (settlement conference). The case was settled at mediation for $129,000.
The Pothitakis Law Firm, P.C. and Nicholas Pothitakis have represented hundreds of clients over the past decade. Although we believe we provide excellent representation for our clients, the results turn on the individual facts of each case. The determination of the need for legal services and the choice of a lawyer are extremely important decisions and should not be based solely upon advertisements or self-proclaimed expertise. All potential claimants are urged to make their own independent investigation or evaluation of any lawyer being considered.
