July, 2012 – Virginia Beach, VA – We obtained a substantial indemnity-only settlement for our client, a machinist, who lost his leg due to the work accident. A heavy-duty cable broke free of a very large engine frame, severely crushing our client’s foot and lower leg. Attempts to save the foot with surgery were unsuccessful, so he underwent a below-the-knee amputation. We obtained a substantial indemnity settlement for our client, which will help him provide an education for his daughter. Our client retains a lifetime MedicalAward for his related medical expenses for maintenance and replacement of his prosthesis and other related medical costs. We are happy to report that he has found another job and he is doing quite well.
