$110,000 Lump Sum Settlement for Bucks County Meat Cutter.
Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Jonathan B. Koutcher of Pearson Koutcher, LLP represented a 65 year old meat cutter from Bucks County with a cervical spine injury. Mr. Koutcher previously litigated and won a complicated fact pattern in a Claim Petition whereby repetitive activities were alleged to have caused a cervical spine injury resulting in surgery. In the current litigation, the employer offered the injured worker a modified duty position. The case was further complicated by an unrelated medical condition of the injured worker. The parties attended a mediation and were able to settle the case for the injured who was nearing retirement.
