When a Work Injury Keeps You From the Job You Were Meant to Do

Since we were little, we always had a fascination with the law...with doing what's right...with standing up for those that have been wronged. As we look back at it, this was the job we were "meant" to be doing.

Many of you have similar feelings, or at the least, things occurred along the path that has led you to your current profession to make you say "Yes, this is what I'm meant to be doing", or "This is what I want to do, this is what I'm good at doing."

What happens when a work-related accident occurs and leaves you with an injury that causes you to be unable to do the job you were meant to do?

We ran across a recent case where a deliveryman (who was known to have "loved his job") slipped on some stairs while making a delivery. It left with him major back and ankle problems, and after awhile, it was determined that the occupation of a deliveryman no longer fit his way of life. Sitting for prolonged amounts of time left him in severe pain...and he was no longer capable of carrying heavy packages.

What does he do now? Here, through no fault of his own, he's been left in a state of uncertainty. If I can't do the job that I know...that I love...what will I do? How do I make a living?

Taking into all these factors, the deliveryman was awarded a sum of over $100,000. You might think, wow...that's an incredible amount...and it is an impressive amount, but still, here's a gentleman that will no longer be able to do what he used to in order to support himself and his family. Attorneys must look long-term to see how these injuries will impact their client further down the road.

We at Loney and Schueller will explore all your avenues and options to ensure that you receive your full and rightful compensation.
