$80,000 Lump Sum Settlement With Open Medical Treatment for Lancaster County Tractor Trailer Driver.
This injured worker sustained an injury to his shoulder. However, the employer alleged that the injured worker had violated a company policy and terminated the injured worker from employment. The worker’s compensation insurance company then filed Petitions to Terminate and Suspend the injured worker’s benefits. Philadelphia worker’s compensation attorney Eric Pearson, of Pearson Koutcher, LLP, defended the injured worker and fully litigated the petitions, challenging the reasoning behind the injured worker’s termination from employment and presenting medical evidence in opposition to the insurance company doctor who felt the injured worker had fully recovered. Mr. Pearson was able to negotiate a settlement which included open and ongoing medical treatment.
