Verdicts/Settlements (Case Results):
  • Martin Law partner Joseph Huttemann just recently secured a $3.2 million worker’s compensation settlement for his client. The $3,200,000 settlement was obtained for a 21 year old automotive technician, who became a paraplegic after suffering a cervical fracture and arterial dissection from a car accident on his way to a training seminar. The insurance carrier had initially denied the client’s workers’ compensation claim in November 2016 based upon a course & scope of employment defense. After attorney Huttemann presented Mr. Wruble’s case, the carrier agreed to mediate, leading to this resolution. The settlement funds will be immediately utilized by Mr. Wruble to obtain stem cell therapy for his spinal cord injuries. Attorney Huttemann will consider this case a true success when his client regains use of his legs through the cutting- edge rehabilitation program in which he can now enroll.  , 2017
