$190,000 Payment for Knee Injury

Case Synopsis:

Claimant was a carpenter who suffered a knee injury while bending over nailing down industrial carpet. Originally, the injury seemed no more than a sprain and strain but eventually it worsened and the treating physician recommended a total knee replacement. However, that same doctor indicated claimant could perform sedentary work.

 

Outcome:

This matter resolved for $190,000 with the stipulation that medical bills would be left open for two years during which time the employer would be responsible if the claimant needed knee replacement.
