Plumber's Work Injury case in D.C. settled

A union plumber who hurt his back on the job received a workers compensation settlement of over half a million dollars.  Hurt while lifting a pipe at work, he was not able to return to his regular duty work in construction.  He'd had surgery and other treatment but wasn't able to lift and carry the equipment, tools and materials he once did.

He had worked in the trade his whole life and didn't have a lot of options or other work he could do to feed his family.

Before negotiating the settlement, we fought to ensure his workers compensation benefits continued and he received all of the medical treatment he needed for his work injury for life.
