Settlement Alert – Keith More & Whit Bertch team up for a Personal Injury & Workers’ Comp success story!

Keith P. More and Whit D. Bertch of Bentley & More LLP secured a $1.01M policy limits settlement for a fifty-five-year-old man who suffered catastrophic injuries when he fell 18.5 feet from a scaffold system on a residential development construction project in Irvine, California. He suffered numerous fractures including seventeen ribs, lumbar, sacrum, pelvis, clavicle, left mandibular angle, and right mandibular parasymphysis. He also suffered a grade III lacerated kidney, heart contusion,  respiratory failure, and traumatic pneumothorax. He was hospitalized for 29 days. After the fall, Cal-OSHA performed an investigation and determined that the scaffold system was negligently erected and identified forty-six (46) instances of violations of Title 8 of the California Code of Regulations. It issued five (5) citations and proposed penalties exceeding $69,000.  Additionally, due to allegations of significant employer negligence the workers compensation lien of $404,000 was reduced to $50,000 and a waiver of credit rights in the work comp case. The firm is also representing him for his workers compensation case as he was on-the-job at the time of the fall working as a framing foreman for his employer.

Keith More and his team reach justice for Workers’ Comp client

Over four years ago, our client was at work when a bridge collapsed in Corona off of the 91 freeway. He suffered severe injuries for which his employer’s work comp carrier denied treatment, delayed necessary medical care and then up till today (the day of trial) would not admit all of his injuries. Adamantly, the defense attorney asked the judge to continue the trial.
