Another Law Firm Turned This Case Down, But We Won a $130,000 Settlement

When it comes to work-related injuries, it's important to have an experienced attorney on your side. The workers compensation system can be complex, and insurance companies will often go to great lengths to avoid paying out claims. At Bourne Law Firm, we have the experience and expertise needed to help injured workers get the compensation they deserve.

Recently, we had a client who was injured while traveling for work in Florida. He fell asleep while driving and was involved in an accident that left him with over $100,000 in hospital bills. Despite the fact that he was on a work trip at the time of the accident, the workers compensation insurance company denied his claim. They claimed that he was not in the course of employment when the accident occurred.

Our client initially sought the help of another law firm, but they turned his case down, telling him that there was nothing they could do. However, he didn't give up, and he eventually found his way to Bourne Law Firm.

We knew that our client a tough but valuable case, so we decided to litigate it. We fought hard against the insurance company, and in the end, we were able to secure a $130,000 settlement for our client. This settlement covered all of his medical bills, as well as his lost wages and other expenses related to the accident.

This case highlights the importance of choosing an experienced workers compensation lawyer. If our client had gone with the first law firm he contacted, he would have been left with nothing. But because he chose Bourne Law Firm, he was able to get the compensation he deserved.

The Importance of Hiring a Trial Attorney

While there are many attorneys out there who claim to be able to handle workers compensation cases, not all of them are created equal. In fact, some attorneys are known as "settlement mills," which means that they will try to settle your case as quickly as possible, even if it means accepting a lower settlement than you deserve. Others may be afraid to go to court, which means that they won't be able to fight for your rights in front of a judge.

At Bourne Law Firm, we believe that every client deserves to have their case heard in court. We are not afraid to go to trial, and we have the experience and expertise needed to win even the toughest cases. When you choose Bourne Law Firm, you can rest assured that you will have a trial attorney on your side, someone who will fight for your rights every step of the way.
