The Pothitakis Law Firm, P.C. recently resolved a claim for a client based on injuries to both right and left shoulders. The claimant was working for an Iowa employer when he sustained an injury to his right shoulder. He underwent surgery on the right shoulder and while recovering, he started doing all of his work with his left shoulder. The Pothitakis Law Firm, P.C. successfully documented how the left shoulder injury and condition was related to overuse. The injured employee then required surgery on his left shoulder because of the overuse. This was ultimately accepted by the Iowa Workers Compensation Insurance company as work related. The claim was settled in mediation to the satisfaction of the claimant and law firm.
