  • A bulldozer operator recovered a $500,000 settlement for his ongoing and sometimes debilitating back injuries. The Horwitz firm had prevailed in arbitration, before the Illinois Workers' Compensation Commission, and in Circuit Court. Although the employer's insurance company then took the case to the Illinois Appellate Court, it settled before the appeal was decided
  • A person with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome (RSD) received a $2 million settlement. The condition, also known as Type I Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, can involve severe burning pain, pathological changes in bone and skin, tissue swelling and extreme sensitivity to touch
  • A union electrician suffering from myofascial pain disorder saw more than a eleven fold increase in a $45,000 settlement offer after Mitch caught a doctor providing prepared cross examination questions and answers to an insurance company defense attorney. The doctor had denied repeatedly under oath the possibility that such a document existed
