Workers' Compensation Settlement

Client injured his low back while working as a manager for a hardware store. Conservative medical treatment followed and the client returned to the time of injury employer. However, the workers' compensation insurer contended that no additional medical treatment would be needed and declined to approve requests for additional conservative treatment. We were able to obtain a favorable settlement for our client.
