$105,000 Lump Sum Settlement for Delaware County Union Fire Fighter.
A firefighter injured his lower back, was receiving treatment from an orthopedist and did not feel he could return to his job as a fire fighter. The worker’s compensation insurance carrier filed a Petition to Terminate Compensation Benefits based upon the examination of the physician it chose to perform an independent medical examination. Litigation ensued and the injured worker’s benefits were placed in jeopardy. The injured worker was represented by Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Jonathan Koutcher of Pearson Koutcher, LLP. Mr. Koutcher devotes his practice to representing injured workers and is certified as a specialist in worker’s compensation. The employer, a city municipality in Delaware County, rarely settled worker’s compensation cases. However, after the parties attended a Mediation, with some additional negotiating thereafter, a settlement was reached. Importantly, the injured worker was in a Union and had certain benefits that were preserved, as the injured worker was not required to resign/retire as a condition of the settlement.
