One Of The Firm's Workers' Compensation Cases

When the insurance company would not even make an offer to settle a claim by a woman who had undergone numerous surgical procedures, Mr. Kovacs tried the case to prove that her injuries were caused by the job. He was successful in obtaining a judgment in his client′s favor for 100 percent permanent disability and the award was upheld on appeal. Also, when an insurance carrier refused to provide payment for a needed back surgery, Mr. Kovacs was successful in getting the workers' compensation court to award the medical benefits and temporary disability benefits while the employee remained unable to work.
