500% Increase in Total Disability Rate Secured for Part-Time Worker

August 2016

After persuading the insurer to accept liability for a denied claim, Montana Work Comp Solutions was able, over the course of nearly a year using mediation and litigation, to secure two rate increases for the claimant.  The result was the total disability rate being raised from $36.67 per week to $185.64 - an increase of more than 500%.  The increased rate also resulted in the payment of past due benefits for more than $11,000.
