Marc S. was employed by Muskingum County when he sustained a devastating injury at 41 years of age. He fell out of the back of a moving pickup truck, striking his head on the pavement and losing consciousness. His skull was fractured and blood clots developed on his brain. He was diagnosed with a traumatic brain injury. In addition to his physical injuries, his TBI resulted in a profound personality change. He has required ongoing residential treatment in a program that can support his complex medical and behavioral needs and will require lifetime care.
Not long after his injury, we were instrumental in obtaining approval for Marc to be transferred to a nationally recognized center in Pennsylvania for long term treatment of his condition. Following several years at this facility, his condition improved to where we were able to assist in having him relocated back to Ohio to be closer to family, including his brother who has been granted guardianship.
After several years of temporary total disability benefits as his condition continued to show modest but steady improvement, we were able to obtain a 72% disability rating for Marc and have him placed on permanent total disability. Compensation and medical benefits paid and payable in his claim total several million dollars.
