Pearson Koutcher Law Wins Claim Petition for Injured Bucks County Union Painter
Jonathan Koutcher of Pearson Koutcher Law won a Claim Petition filed for an injured Bucks County Union painter. The injured worker had slipped and fallen from a ladder, landing awkwardly on the ground. The insurance company for the employer agreed the injured worker was hurt at work, but only accepted the lower back injury as a “strain/sprain”. The injured worker actually injured his lower back more severely, requiring surgery. Mr. Koutcher was able to prove, through the testimony of the injured worker’s treating neurosurgeon, that the lower back condition requiring surgery was the result of the work accident, which aggravated the injured worker’s underlying lower back condition. Now that the Claim Petition has been granted by the Judge, the injured worker can undergo lower back surgery to be paid for by the employer and begin to receive wage loss benefits when out of work.
