Jenkins Block & Associates wins Workers' Compensation award for client who contracted TB as Hooters waitress.

“’It feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders because it’s finally someone acknowledging that this isn’t my fault.’”

Jenkins Block & Associates represented Jherri Stratton of Baltimore in a recent prominent Workers’ Compensation case. Stratton was diagnosed with active tuberculosis in November while employed as a waitress at Hooters. For months, the Jenkins Block & Associates team was going back and forth with the insurance company in an effort to win Stratton the Workers’ Compensation benefits she is entitled to. The insurance company finally agreed that this was in fact a compensable claim and is now paying her Workers’ Compensation benefits.

Jherri was quoted in the Baltimore Sun saying, “It feels like a weight lifted off my shoulders because it’s finally someone acknowledging that this isn’t my fault.’” (June 8, 2012)

The JBA team is happy to represent Jherri Stratton in her Workers’ Compensation claim with the Maryland Workers Compensation Commission (Case#W031179).
