Hampton, VA, May, 2020. Lumbar Spinal Surgery from Back Injury While lifting a Heavy Box. Attorney Joe Miller secured a substantial, six-figure settlement for a 56-year-old box handler for a national, private mail and package delivery carrier, who was injured while lifting some boxes that weighed over 150 pounds. He ultimately underwent a decompression and fusion of a herniated disc in his lumbar spine. He ultimately reached a plateau in his medical treatment, remaining only capable of return to sedentary work. His doctor insisted on the use of very expensive and patented pain patches for our client’s ongoing pain relief, which drove up the price of the settlement.
