Bollinger Law Firm won two cases this week!

Bob Bollinger received two winning decisions from the Industrial Commission in the past week.  From a Deputy Commissioner, Bob's client with a ripped up rotator cuff got a favorable decision.  That client had ripped his shoulder climbing up on the back of a box truck.  As the delivery manager, he did not normally perform that maneuver.  It was an interruption of his normal work routine and therefore an "injury by accident."   The Defendants have appealed that decision to the Full Commission.   

In the second case, the Full Commmission in a 3-0 decision affirmed Deputy Houser's decision in favor of the widow Bob represented.  Her husband had died from an "ischemic bowel" that appeared to be the result of "OIC" -- Opiod Induced Constipation.  The gentleman, who had been Bob's client, had been taking opiod pain medications for years due to his workers' comp injury.  He had also suffered from OIC for years, and eventually developed a bowel obstruction that lead to a necrotic colon, which lead to his death.  Bob was very pleased to win this case for his client, who had lost her husband.
