PA workers’ compensation lawyer negotiates $195,000 for a Teamster union member who sustained head and knee injuries when he got caught in a seat belt while exiting a vehicle. Although the carrier initially accepted the claim, following a defense medical exam, a petition was filed by the carrier attempting to terminate all wage loss and medical benefits. The matter proceeded with the client having to testify and Eric Pearson cross-examining the carrier’s medical expert during his testimony. The resolution was the result of a Voluntary Mediation.
