W. Carl Reynolds, ’66, and Joseph Boyd, ’04, of the law firm Reynolds Horne & Survant, recently settled one of the largest workers’ compensation claims in Georgia history for $4.5 million. The claim involved a 28-year-old man who was paralyzed when a tree fell on his car at his job site. Reynolds and Boyd were also able to obtain land for the construction of a handicap-accessible home, a handicap-equipped van and modified equipment for recreational activities.
Boyd says that, “this resolution allows our client some financial independence from the restrictive workers’ compensation system and means to provide for his family. I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to get to know such an inspirational young man.”
