Minor Working In Lumber Yard Sees Successful Settlement

Posted in: by Victor Kademenos

A 17-year-old, working in a lumber yard in the Mansfield area, was severely injured one day while using an unguarded table saw. Three of his fingers were badly mangled, resulting in amputation. The young man went to the Ohio Bureau of Workers’ Compensation and after filing a claim for his injuries, the staff told him he would not need legal representation. A friend coaxed him into hiring an attorney and he soon made a call to Kademenos, Wisehart, Hines, Dolyk & Wright Co. LPA

Attorney Kademenos immediately saw issues within the young man’s case that would not have been handled otherwise. Our client had a workers’ compensation claim, violation of a safety requirement due to the unguarded saw, and a product liability case against the saw manufacturer for improperly guarding the saw, all of which Kademenos successfully handled. The young man saw a successful amount for losing the use of his hand and likewise, a successful outcome in all other areas. Our client settled these viable claims that otherwise would not be addressed without the guidance of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney.
