$200,000 Lump Sum Settlement in Fatal Claim/Death Case.
A widow who lived near Scranton, Pennsylvania settled the fatal claim of her husband for $200,000. The case also involved a third party lawsuit which settled for seven figures (confidential amount), and as a result of a future credit against ongoing death benefits, the amount of the widow’s benefits would have been reduced drastically. Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Jonathan Koutcher of Pearson Koutcher, LLP negotiated a resolution of the widow’s death benefits. Importantly, this allowed the widow to move on with her life and not have to risk her benefits stopping as a result of a relationship resulting in dependency.
