Petitioner was a 64-year-old truck driver who was forced to drive a truck with a defective seat causing her to be bounced about in the truck and injure her neck area. Petitioner did have symptoms of pre-existing degenerative arthritis, but her doctors opined that her work-related activity of driving the truck with a defective seat had aggravated her pre-existing symptoms to a point where they became symptomatic. The case was settled for 10% loss of use of Person as a Whole ($33,236.00) together with all payment of related medical bills. Petitioner had retired by the time this office took on her case so TTD for lost time was not an issue.
