$160,000 Lump Sum Settlement for Delaware County Salesperson.
Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Jonathan B. Koutcher, of Pearson Koutcher, LLP, settled the claim of a salesperson with a lower back and knee injury for the lump sum of $160,000. The injured worker had been employed by a nutritional blender company in a sales position. The job was physically demanding requiring long hours of work. The worker’s compensation insurance company had initially agreed to begin payment of worker’s compensation wage loss benefits. The worker’s compensation insurance company then had the injured worker examined by its own physician during an independent medical examination and instituted litigation against the interest of the injured worker. Mr. Koutcher not only defended the injured worker against the termination of his benefits but also filed a petition to include injuries not initially accepted as work related.
