PRLog - Jan. 31, 2013 - BELLEVILLE, Ill. -- Matthew Nagel of the Schultz & Myers Law Firm agreed to a settlement of $447,338.00 for a man that suffered a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) when a fork lift prong fell on his head at work. The St. Louis factory worker’s skull was crushed when the fork lift detached, causing a serious brain injury with severe decrease in cognitive function. The settlement also includes medical care for the rest of the worker’s life.

The man underwent years of medical care following the 2008 injury, including neurological testing and therapy, vision and hearing rehabilitation, and a series of painful surgeries. Nagel assisted the worker and his wife in ensuring that their medical needs were met, the medical bills were properly paid by the worker’s compensation insurance carrier, and negotiated the settlement. Provisions were made for a lump sum cash payment, a monthly annuity for the worker’s life, and medical care for the rest of his life. “The medical care is crucial, because this gentlemen will need to see a brain doctor at least once a year for the rest of his life,” said Attorney Matthew Nagel. “A integral part of the workers compensation system is that the employer is responsible for the care required to cure and relieve the injury. In this situation there is no telling what type of care he may need in 5 years or 10 years, so we needed to make special provisions.”
