Ohio Workers Comp Amputation Award

When our client, a 41 year old diabetic maintenance worker with a local school system, broke his toe while on the job two years ago, he didn’t think too much about it. Big mistake. Our client, who continued on the job, not only didn’t take care of his sore toe he was non-compliant with his diabetic medication. Due to his lack of vigilance, he eventually ended up with a foot ulcer and had his leg amputated below the knee. He was out of work since the surgery in September 2008. 

When we filed a workers’ compensation claim for him, the school system fought us because they argued that he did not take his diabetic condition seriously or seek timely treatment. After multiple hearings, we got the school system to pay him for his lost time, including the three weeks he was out of work in 2007. He also received an amputation award of $109,500.
