$80,000 Lump Sum Settlement for Injured Philadelphia Dental Assistant.
The performance of repetitive work activities caused this injured worker to develop carpal tunnel syndrome and no longer be able to use her hands to perform the physical activities required for her profession. The employer and its worker’s compensation insurance company filed a petition to terminate the injured worker’s benefits, alleging the injured worker had fully recovered. Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Eric Pearson of Pearson Koutcher, LLP fully litigated and defended the claim, presenting evidence that the injured worker had not fully recovered and had injuries more severe than suggested by the employer. At the conclusion of litigation, Mr. Pearson attended a mediation which resulted in a settlement of the claim.
