Joe Miller Obtains Six-Figure VA Workers Comp Settlement for Nursing Assistant
Norfolk, VA, July, 2014. Joe Miller obtained a six-figure settlement for a Certified Nursing Assistant who was injured when she attempted to assist one of her patients who needed help while showering. The client was initially referred by the employer and workers compensation insurance carrier to company doctors and therapists, who dismissed the client’s complaints of horrific pain as either fantasy or faking. Upon getting in to see a pain specialist, the client was referred for appropriate diagnostic tests, and the true cause of the client’s disabling pain was identified. She had obviously not been faking, it’s just that her treating doctors refused, either purposely or negligently, to obtain the appropriate diagnostic tests. Her case settled at mediation for a substantial sum prior to hearing.
