Joe Miller Obtains Six Figure Settlement for 62- Year- Old Cable Technician at Mediation
2009, Elizabeth City, NC— Joe Miller negotiated at mediation a six-figure settlement for a 62-year old cable technician, who had suffered a low back injury on the job. Even though he had prior problems with his back before the accident, his doctors were of the opinion that the accident had permanently aggravated his low back to the point where he was no longer able to return to his previous job. Rather than to have to continue to pay the man his compensation, or attempt to pay to vocationally rehabilitate him, pay for additional schooling, or risk having to pay for additional medical costs, the company was willing to reach a clincher agreement and pay a lump sum in exchange for avoiding those eventualities. It was a win-win for all parties.
