    In the article “Local lawyer 9th in state ‘Pinkbook,’” published in last week’s Eagle, it was stated that attorney William R. Bacon averages about $35,350 in worker’s comp case settlements. It was explained by Bacon’s legal team that the $35,350 represents Bacon’s average award attained on behalf of his comp clients, keeping their cases open. Settlements close out a case in terms of worsening of condition and generally regarding future medical bills. As a result, Bacon has tried many more comp cases than he settles.
