Unfortunately, a co-worker attacked this 60-year-old gentleman who was working as a security guard. The assault aggravated many pre-existing back issues. Because many of the issues were pre-existing the insurance company was only willing to pay our client a small sum. During mediation we realized that the insurance company was not willing to budge because of these pre-existing conditions, even though our client had been further injured and he would not be able to return to this job. We took the case to hearing, deposed three doctors, two radiologists, and an Emergency Room doctor, all of whom verified the significance of these new injuries due to the assault. We won at hearing, and the client ended up with 15X the insurance company’s original offer.
