In 2016, our firm was instrumental in helping undo a great injustice passed into law at the request of a few irresponsible employers. The Oklahoma Supreme Court struck down the Opt Out Act on September 13, 2016, as an unconstitutional special law. Dillard’s department store opted out of the Oklahoma Workers Compensation Act when it became lawful to do so on February 1, 2014. Subsequently, many injured workers were denied benefits that would have otherwise been due under the Workers’ Compensation Act. Employers were allowed to deny claims and if the employee sought an appeal the appeal was decided by Dillard’s much like the fox watching the hen house.

Though there are no guarantees, with the Burton Law Group, P.C., you can be confident that you have a capable and tenacious law firm at your side. We will devote our time, dedication, and all the resources necessary to pursue the best possible outcome for you.

CALIFORNIA WORKER SUFFERS TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY

Attorney Christopher Asvar has obtained the largest Workers Compensation Insurance Settlement in California history. This year, he was able to procure an 8.9 Million-dollar settlement for his client, Antonio Enriquez. At age 18, in 2004, Enriquez fell from a scaffold while he was working as a painter.  Enriquez suffered severe brain injury as a result of this accident.  He will need medical care for the rest of his life.

Enriquez’s father was his caregiver and was unable to work, unless he placed his son Antonio into a Rehab Facility day and night, which he had to do, prior to the settlement.

Attorney Christopher Asvar, with tenacity and perseverance, was able to procure the nearly nine-million-dollar from the California State Fund — the largest settlement made in the history of California’s Workers’ Compensation at this time.

Antonio Enriquez will receive a structured settlement, which will be paid monthly, for his care and treatment for his brain injury. Thanks to workers compensation laws, his father will be able to care for him at home, and all medical bills will be paid. In addition, concerns over future costs and care can now be forgotten.

ILLINOIS WORKER RECEIVES LARGE SETTLEMENT AFTER EMPLOYER IGNORES DOCTORS’ ORDERS AND ULTIMATELY TERMINATES EMPLOYEE

An interesting, high settlement case took place in Illinois in 2013, when a man’s back was injured on the job. Larry Holland worked for Schwan’s Home Service and slipped on ice while placing goods into a Schwan’s freezer. After a few months of treatment, doctors said he could return to work under certain restrictions. He was not supposed to do heavy lifting or any prolonged standing.

However, his employer ignored this stipulation and his back condition worsened. While he was off work for a short time to undergo intense physical therapy for his back, he received word from Schwan that his position had been terminated. They had supposedly offered him a new position that he had not accepted, but Holland had never received a formal offer letter for any other position. This became a workers comp retaliation case, and $4.3 million dollars was ultimately awarded.

Unfortunately, there are many times when an employer does not honor their responsibilities to an injured employee, and this is why workers compensation attorneys are needed.

Many workers compensation cases are class action lawsuits, because more than one employee has been harmed. In Part Two of this article, we’ll share some of the record class action compensation cases that have taken place in U.S. history.
