$225,000 Lump Sum Workers’ Comp Settlement for Lower Back Injury

Pearson Koutcher Law partner Jonathan Koutcher settled the Workers’ Compensation case of a union building cleaner from New Jersey injured while working in Pennsylvania. The injured worker had a lower back injury resulting in surgery and was not able to return to employment. The Workers’ Compensation insurance company only accepted an injury to the injured worker’s abdomen, so Mr. Koutcher filed a Petition to Review Compensation Benefits so the lower back injury could be added to the case as a work- related injury. Mr. Koutcher presented testimony from the injured worker’s treating neurosurgeon and thereafter was able to negotiate a lump sum settlement in the amount of $225,000, representing almost nine (9) years of wage loss benefits.
