A Local #150 operating engineer seriously injured his back at work. Incredibly, his employer completely denied his claim for workers' compensation benefits. Partner Jeffrey M. Alter took on the case and proceeded to trial on behalf of the worker. After being brought to their knees, the company settled the claim for $125,000.00 and was required to also pay all of the worker's medical expenses. Justice done. Congrats to Jeffrey M. Alter!
