A 43-year-old Hispanic man, married and with a daughter, has lived in the US since he turned 15. He works as a driver delivering goods to a company. His job is to make daily deliveries with his truck in several areas of the city. On one of the trips, he was run over by an employee who was driving a forklift. The man was severely hit in a leg, so he was immediately transferred to the hospital. There, the man called Grupo MedLegal®’s participant lawyers and one of the representatives went ahead and filed his claim to start the workers’ compensation proceedings.
When you make decisions that change your life
One morning while a man was delivering in his truck, he arrived at the storage area of a large grocery store. Everyone was shouting to be served, people were coming and going, and nobody was paying attention to him. He was in a hurry because he didn’t have enough time to do the next delivery, so he decided to look for the person in charge. He went through a plastic curtain, that was not transparent and didn’t has signs. Suddenly, the driver as hit by a boy who was riding a forklift. The boy did not sound the horn or warn that he was going to cross, so the driver could not imagine that a vehicle would pass through there. Immediately they had to call the ambulance, the man screamed because of the pain in his leg.
You are guilty until proven otherwise
While the man was in hospital, he was visited by a person from the grocery company where the accident took place. He wanted to know the details of the event. The injured man gave his version and the representative of the company accused him of being guilty of the incident, and told him that the store would not pay for what happened.
Trapped by impotence
After the visit, the poor driver was shocked by the accusation and was worried about the hospital and surgery payments, and care expenses that he would have while he should have to take time off from work to recover.
He also had severe pain in his right leg because after the blow he lost all sensitivity, his fingers were swollen and numb, and he had a fibula fracture.
There is always a solution to every problem
The driver recalled a recommendation made by a colleague. He called Grupo MedLegal® and one of the representatives came to his call and set up a visit with one of the lawyers who would help him make his claim.
The lawyer formally requested his compensation and sent him with doctors specialized in the treatment of his fracture and his physical rehabilitation.
The gentleman can now relax and recover. He will no longer be stressed by the expenses becauses the store’s insurance will take care of all of his payments.
