$90,000 lump sum settlement for Philadelphia bus operator with shoulder injury

A Philadelphia bus operator tripped and fell, injuring his shoulder. The insurance company initially started paying the injured worker wage loss benefits and the injured worker then returned to work on light duty. However, while on light duty, the employer paid the injured worker less money; Philadelphia Workers’ Compensation attorney, Jonathan Koutcher, of Pearson Koutcher Law, filed a petition seeking partial disability benefits. When the employer then advised the injured worker that light duty work was no longer available, Mr. Koutcher was able to reinstate the injured worker’s total disability benefits. Mr. Koutcher was then able to negotiate a settlement for the injured worker.
