A man was buried in a sand pile after he had pulled his truck up to a large pile of sand and began loading his truck.  The sand avalanched, buried and suffocated him.

An EMT was injured as he was transporting a patient when the elevator they were riding in malfunctioned, causing him to injure his lower back.

Attorney Wittorff prevailed.

The client is presently working full time.  Attorney Wittorff won the worker's compensation claim and was also able to get the worker's compensation carrier to waive a $300,000.00 lien.  

$300,000.00 Workers' Compensation
