Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. Workers’ Compensation Attorney Secures a $372,500 Settlement and Recovers Over $38,000 in Under Payment for a Misrepresented Local 1 Ironworker

Jun 16, 2015 | Firm News

Partner Douglas A. Colby of Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak & Kohen, Ltd. obtained a $372,500 settlement and recovered over $38,000 in underpayment of weekly workers’ compensation benefits on behalf of an injured Local 1 Ironworker.

The ironworker suffered a serious injury to his left arm that required surgery. While he recovered, he hired another attorney to handle his workers’ compensation case. Throughout the entire process, the ironworker felt that the attorney did not have his best interests.  Once the previous attorney failed to obtain the compensation he felt deserved, the client decided to hire a new law firm in order to be fairly compensated for his injury.

Finally, he selected the personal injury law firm Anesi, Ozmon, Rodin, Novak, & Kohen, Ltd. to handle his case after speaking with a trusted source who knew about the firm’s history of obtaining successful results for personal injury victims and its dedication to providing the best advocacy for construction workers and tradespeople.

When workers’ compensation attorney Douglas Colby reviewed the history of the case, he recognized that there was a substantial underpayment of weekly benefits and diligently worked to rectify the issue. In less than two months, Doug Colby dedicated his expertise and years of experience in workers’ compensation law to secure a significant settlement and recover the entire lost TTD (Temporarily Total Disability) benefits (that the previous attorney failed to achieve) for the injured Local 1 Ironworker.

Medical bills . . . just a lot of uncertainty, fear and just being taken great advantage of, my settlement is only a few dollars, less than $4,000, this is in no way due to lack of working hard and vigorously for me [sic].”
