Jeffrey Kaufman and Alex Berman obtain largest reported workers’ compensation settlements in 2018.
Michigan Lawyers Weekly publishes an annual list of the highest reported verdicts and settlements in the state. We are proud to announce that Jeffrey Kaufman and Alex Berman have obtained the largest reported workers’ compensation settlements in 2018.
Michigan law allows a person to trade his or her workers’ compensation benefits for a lump sum cash payment. This is an attractive option for individuals who do not want to be under insurance company control. Settlement gives a person the freedom to get medical treatment and vocational rehabilitation on their own terms. Unfortunately, pain and suffering damages are not available.
Jeffrey Kaufman obtained a 2-million-dollar settlement for an individual who fell off a roof and suffered paralysis. Workers’ compensation benefits were disputed based upon alleged employer premium fraud and later statutory employment. This ranked as the 46th highest settlement in the entire State of Michigan. An incredible feat considering the average state-wide workers’ compensation settlement was $58,156.09 in 2017.
Alex Berman obtained a 1.4-million-dollar settlement for a man paralyzed in a workplace accident. This was the 72nd highest settlement in the State of Michigan. This was not just a financial achievement but a great service for our client. He was ready to move on with his life and settlement allows him that opportunity.
