$125,000 Settlement for School Police Officer from Philadelphia.
A female School Police Officer was assaulted by a student and sustained a shoulder injury that required multiple surgical procedures. Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Jonathan B. Koutcher of Pearson Koutcher, LLP represented the injured worker. The employer was in the process of performing a labor market survey. The employer ultimately was going to file a petition to reduce the injured worker’s benefits based upon an argument that the injured worker had earning power. In advance of litigation Mr. Koutcher was able to negotiate a settlement for the injured worker.
