Mr. Richardson, a 23 year old cook’s aid for a large restaurant chain experienced an allergic reaction while breading seafood for an “all you can eat” shrimp special. The allergic reaction caused a severe anoxic brain injury and he was left in a persistent vegetative state.
Because this was a work related injury, a worker’s compensation claim was filed. The employer initially denied liability claiming Mr. Richardson had an asthma attack which was induced by an activity prior to his arriving at work. After months of investigation and expert testimony, The Perron Law Firm was successful in securing a structured settlement for Mr. Richardson which included sums set aside for his current and future medical needs and care.
The Perron Law Firm was also featured in Lawyer's Weekly for a $1.8 million dollar settlement in a workers compensation case. Click Here to read the article.
