$1,225.00/Week for Life
An arbitrator ordered the employer to pay $1,225.00 a week and penalties against the employer.
- The Case
A Teamster suffered a herniated disk at work. He didn’t hire a lawyer for a year and a half. Therefore, the employer had the Teamster treat with only “company doctors.”
- In Depth Look
The doctors for the employer wrote letters releasing back to work even though he was not capable of working. He hired Mitchell Horwitz. With Mitchell’s help, the teamster realized that he could choose his own physicians also. He was able to select top physician talent out of Chicago. Subsequently, Mitchell Horwitz tried the case and argued that the employer tricked its own physicians into releasing him to full duty. The arbitrator agreed with Horwitz and awarded penalties against the employer. Further, the Teamster is now receiving $1,225.00 dollars a week as a result of Mitchell’s work.
