A man from Carroll, Iowa sustained a traumatic neck injury that caused damage to his spinal cord.  Thankfully, he was able to avoid surgery like a neck fusion, but unfortunately, the injury caused some permanent damage to his spinal cord.  After an FCE (functional capacity evaluation) he was given permanent work restrictions placing him in the “medium” category of work allowing him to lift and carry up to 40 pounds occasionally and 20 pounds frequently.  He ended up losing his job where he was injured because it required him to be able to lift up to 100 pounds.  He did find another job that he was able to do, but it paid a little less than what he had been making.  After negotiating by sending letters back and forth for a few weeks, the insurance company eventually agreed to pay $290,000 to settle his case.
