After an early victory at a hearing and a long, hard road, Joe Miller recently obtained a substantial settlement for a 58-year old Martinsville, Virginia woman whose claim was initially denied by the employer. The employer claimed that she had just slipped on some stairs and therefore had not been hurt due to a risk of employment. We quickly showed the Commission how the stairs were defective and that she had a slippery substance on her shoes due to her job. The Deputy Commissioner was so impressed with her testimony and our preparation of her case that he Awarded her the workers compensation benefits the day after the hearing.
Several months later, after it was clear that the employer was not going to let her return to work, we were finally able to obtain a substantial settlement for her so she could move on to the next stage of her life.
It was such a privilege to represent this fine person. It was incredibly gratifying to be able to help someone who was clearly being taken advantage of by the workers compensation carrier. We’d like to share with you her impression of our services:
I was injured at work through no fault of my own and my Workman’s Comp Claim was denied. When I received the denial letter from WC, I was devastated. Being that I had never gone through anything like this, I decided to contact Mr. Miller for advise. Instantly, he made me feel that I was in good hands, and that he would do everything he could to help me through this difficult time. Not only did he show excellent professionalism, he was very knowledgeable, compassionate, informative, and sensitive to all my concerns. And there is no way I can leave out Ms. Hancock (the paralegal), she was the greatest and so easy to talk to. By the time this case was settled, I felt like she was more like family or a long time friend. She and Mr Miller and a great team. If you’re ever in need of a great attorney, please contact Mr Miller first. I promise you that you will not be disappointed.
We thank our client for these kind words. It was likewise a privilege to assist her.
