Philadelphia workers’ compensation attorney, Jonathan B. Koutcher, of Pearson Koutcher Law, settled a fatal claim for the widow of a Monroe County laborer who was killed at work after suffering a blunt force trauma to the head. A third-party lawsuit against the tortfeasor resulted in a significant settlement. Mr. Koutcher was successful in transferring the claim from New Jersey to Pennsylvania, where the Workers’ Compensation system was more beneficial to the widow and negotiated a settlement thereafter that included credits for overpayments in New Jersey, the third-party subrogation lien and future fatal claim benefits. A confidentiality clause in precludes disclosure of the amount of the settlement.
