Confidential: Lump Sum settlement in Fatal Claim for Monroe County Widow.
Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Jonathan B. Koutcher, of Pearson Koutcher, LLP, settled a fatal claim for the widow of a Monroe County laborer who was killed at work after suffering a blunt force trauma to the head. A third party lawsuit against the tortfeasor resulted in a significant settlement. Mr. Koutcher was successful in transferring the claim from New jersey to Pennsylvania where the worker’s compensation system was more beneficial to the widow, and negotiated a settlement thereafter that included credits for overpayments in New Jersey, the third party subrogation lien and future fatal claim benefits. A confidentiality clause in precludes disclosure of the amount of the settlement.
