January 2013 - Permanent Disability Workers' Compensation Award for Injured Worker

An injured worker who sustained serious injuries to her leg was awarded permanent total disability benefits by a St. Louis Workers' Compensation judge in January 2013.  After the insurance company refused to provide permanent total disability benefits, the attorneys at Muchnick & Haber were able to obtain the award after a hearing.  Todd Muchnick successfully convinced the judge that the claimant was deserving of the total disability benefits.

The injured worker sustained fractures to her chest, pelvis, and left lower extremity.   The insurance company argued that because the worker could perform various miscellaneous tasks for a family business that she was not totally disabled.  The insurance company also argued that because the worker could accompany family on various recreational activities that she should not be able to receive benefits.  Despite these arguments, our attorneys were able to obtain the benefits she deserved.
