Client: Sprint PCS
Court: Appellate Division
Trial Attorney: Michelle L. Duffield, Esq.
Petitioner obtained an award of 30% permanent partial disability in 2003 arising from a work-related motor vehicle accident dating back to 1999. The award was for a bulging disc at C6-7 and disc protrusions at L4-5 and L5-S1. Petitioner later reopened the award and sought total and permanent disability benefits with the Second Injury Fund. We successfully argued that petitioner’s subsequent increased disability was not related to the 1999 work accident but to subsequent non-work injuries.
