$215,000 Lump Sum Settlement for Lancaster County Union Pipefitter
Pearson Koutcher Law partner Jonathan Koutcher represented a Union pipefitter from Lancaster County with a hand injury. The claim was initially denied by the worker’s compensation insurance company. Mr. Koutcher fully litigated a Claim Petition, alleging that the injured worker’s hand injuries were a result of repetitive trauma to the hand due to regular job activities, which was granted by the worker’s compensation Judge. The injured worker’s hand injury was thus deemed work related and the injured worker was able to undergo hand surgery and receive worker’s compensation wage loss benefits. The injured worker’s wage loss benefit checks were sent late by the worker’s compensation insurance company, so Mr. Koutcher filed a Petition for Penalties. The parties then negotiated a settlement for the injured worker in the amount of $215,000.
