Caswell, Panko & Westerhold, LLC

Jennifer Caswell successfully defended a claim arguing the injury was temporary and minor.  The judge restricted claimant to benefits already paid and denied additional extensive temporary benefits and potential permanent benefits.  Ms. Caswell also successfully defended a permanent total disability claim brought by a 49 year old claimant, thereby avoiding large permanency exposure.  Judge Fitzgerald also declined to award any future medical treatment in that case.
