Another example of how insurance companies will tell you things that are just not true. I recently took a Jacksonville case to trial involving our client who suffered the loss of her leg in 1990 while working. The case remained open and recently she suffered a fall when her prosthetic caught on a gate, causing severe injuries to her knee which required multiple surgeries.
When she called the workers comp adjuster she was told she was “clumsy” and it was her own fault and thus, her own responsibility. Not true! Because the prosthetic contributed to the fall, the subsequent injuries should have been the responsibility of the workers’ comp. insurance company.
The case went to trial and the Judge agreed with our position. So, don’t just take what the insurance carrier tells you as true, call us for the facts!
