When working at a drycleaner employees must be careful to protect themselves against burns from equipment. Although, even the most cautious workers strive to prevent injuries at work, our client was unfortunate enough to excessively burn her hand with a hot iron. After being evaluated, the treating physician ordered extensive treatment including from both an orthopedic surgeon as well as a plastic surgeon. After completing her medical treatment we were able to obtain a top offer of $30,000.00 to fully and finally settle the Virginia Workers’ Compensation Claim.
This case was settled for a total of $30,000.
