Summerville SC Fall Injury Case Results

Summerville, SC Attorney Secures Positive Results in Workers’ Comp Case Involving a Fall from a Street Sweeper

Attorney Kelly Alfreds has successfully concluded a challenging case involving a client who sustained serious injuries at their workplace. The incident occurred when the client fell from the side of a street sweeper, resulting in significant back and neck injuries. The client underwent complex surgery involving decompression and fusion of the spine. Unfortunately, the client developed Ossification of the Posterior Longitudinal Ligament (OPLL), a condition where the ligaments along the vertebra and disc harden into bone. Despite the success of the surgery, the client’s health continued to decline, leaving them reliant on a walker or cane.

Attorney Alfreds tirelessly advocated for her client, going beyond the norm to secure essential resources for a better quality of life. Recognizing the client’s deteriorating condition, Alfreds took the initiative to request specialized accommodations from medical professionals. This led to the prescription of a motorized scooter, an electric lift for the client’s vehicle, and the installation of a ramp at the entrance of their home.

Alfreds not only secured a settlement for the client’s injuries but also negotiated additional funds to cover future medical treatments and the necessary modifications to improve her client’s daily life. Workers’ compensation insurance typically does not cover expenses related to home modifications or items like scooters unless deemed essential for the client’s functionality. Attorney Alfreds’ tenacity resulted in an excellent outcome for her client.
