Attorney Peter Rotatori, III of The Rotatori Law Firm of Southbury, Connecticut favorably resolved another Connecticut workers' compensation construction accident case filed in Stamford in the Connecticut Workers' Compensation Seventh District. The claimant, a Woodbury, Connecticut resident, was flipped while standing on a piece of plywood in Newburgh, New York as a truck backed up over the plywood, spun its wheels and caused the claimant to be thrown in the air landing on his back. The claimant's work related accident aggravated a prior low back degenerative condition. The claimant was formally diagnosed with an aggravation of pre existing lumbar spondylolisthesis at the L3-L4. The claimant's injury resulted in a ten percent impairment of the low back assigned by neurosurgeon Dr. Alan Waitze of NOSS of Waterbury, Connecticut. The claimant treated with chiropractic physician Dr. Steven Levy also of Woodbury, Connecticut who successfully performed a variety of modalities of care on behalf of the claimant. These modalities included massage, acupuncture, manipulation and muscle stimulation. The claimant required no spinal injections nor was low back surgery suggested. The case settled for $87,000.00 which included the paid permanency indemnity and stipulation proceeds.
