Burger King Cashier Injured in Slip and Fall Accident

Represented by Ankin Law Office attorney Jill Wagner, a 30-year-old Burger King employee who injured her right hand in a slip and fall accident had her case decided by an arbitrator. The woman was a cashier for Burger King and on the day of the accident, she was instructed to take a customer’s food order out to the parking lot where he was waiting for his food. In the parking lot, she slipped and fell on the ice, landing onto her right hand. Feeling immediate pain she told her supervisor. After completing a report she was directed to the company clinic, Evergreen Care Center. After many appointments and ineffective treatments, the preponderance of credible evidence established that the woman has right carpal tunnel syndrome, has failed conservative medical care and now needs a right carpal tunnel release and Guyon’s release.

The Arbitrator ruling included:
The woman receive payment of past medical fees associated with the accident.
She will receive $198/week for 68 6/7th weeks.
She is awarded temporary total disability benefits.
Burger King will pay for prospective care in the form of a right carpal tunnel release and Guyon’s release.
