$89,000 Lump Sum Settlement with Open Medical Treatment for Philadelphia Factory Worker.
A Philadelphia injured worker who worked in a factory injured his lower back. The injured worker had been receiving worker’s compensation benefits since 2009. Many rounds of litigation occurred, most recently where the injured worker’s benefits were modified as a result of work being generally available in his local geographic area. The injured worker elected to settle his case as a result of a lower weekly compensation rate while at the same time still being able to treat for his work related injuries, as the medical portion of his claim was left open.
