Wrist injury settlement for university employee in D.C.

A university police officer sustained a serious wrist injury when she was on the job.  The injury required two surgeries by a hand specialist and orthopedic surgeon, and she was still left with limited use of the wrist.

Because her job duties included carrying a firearm, breaking up fights and altercations and providing campus security, this worker could not go back to her job.

After many years of workers compensation benefits in DC, she was able to settle her workers comp claim based on not being able to return to work and the permanent disability of her arm caused by the injury.
