Big Settlement For Worker’s Carpal Tunnel And Shoulder Injury

Claimant sustained cumulative injuries to his right and left upper extremities.  He underwent right and left carpal tunnel surgeries and right shoulder surgery.  As a result of the injury the claimant was required to bid into a lower paying, less physically demanding job.  This job paid 25% less than the job he was working at the time of his Iowa Workers' Compensation injury.  The case was filed and set for mediation (settlement conference).  The case was settled at mediation for $129,000.
