In a hotly contested trial our client was awarded a total of just over $508,000 in medical benefits, back wages and permanent injury.  The case involved a shoulder and lumbar spine injury.  The employer and its lawyers refused to accept liability for the lumbar spine injury (the vast majority of the award).  In a 14 page decision the Arbitrator found for our client.  This case was referred to us from a Chicago law firm who already had an expert for our client.  We thought we knew a better expert in St. Louis and referred our client there.  The expert did the lumbar fusion and testified in the case.  It was on the strength of our client’s preparation and the expert testimony (we took 3 depositions) that we won.  A lot of the credit has to be given to my work comp team of Sam and Abi.  They were great!  If you want the same effort for your case then call us at 618-655-9499 or 618-254-0055.  We cannot guarantee the same result, just the same effort.  The Law Office of Keith Short
