Boston, Massachusetts (Vocus/PRWEB) April 06, 2011
Boston personal injury lawyer Steven Whitman at the law firm of Whitman Law has obtained a $308,677.00 settlement on behalf of a Massachusetts construction worker who sustained an anterior labral tear to his left shoulder in November 2005.
Boston personal injury lawyer Steve Whitman, represented a construction worker in a workers compensation claim against the employer’s workers compensation carrier who fought to first deny then later discontinue benefits. After six years of successfully negating the insurance carrier’s challenges, Attorney Whitman was able to negotiate a lump sum settlement.
The agreement, reached after six years of negotiations, resolves the employee’s workers compensation claim against his employer. The Honorable Robert Horan in Boston approved the settlement.

Steven Whitman, a Massachusetts personal injury lawyer states, “We were very satisfied with this lump sum settlement. The workers compensation insurance carrier fought my client every step of the way yet we were able to win at each stage of the litigation. After six years of litigation the client was extremely relieved that we were able to craft a settlement that allowed him one-half of the settlement funds presently with the remainder paid out for the next 12 years through an annuity. This allowed him a good portion of money now with the relief that he would continue to receive payments into the future. I think we really wore the insurance company down.”
