$175,000.00 Settlement for Work Related Knee Injury

A union worker from Halifax, Pennsylvania (PA), working as a construction laborer for Trumbull Corp., sustained a work injury described as a left leg / left thigh contusion and left proximal fibular bruising in May 2012, which the insurance carrier, American Zurich Insurance Company, accepted. The injured worker had filed a Claim Petition. The Claim Petition described the injured worker’s injury as “left thigh contusion; left leg internal derangement; left knee injury.” The insurance carrier had the injured worker attend an independent medical examination in 2013 and the IME physician reported that the injured worker’s diagnosis was status post left knee contusion with peroneal nerve contusion status post decompression with increasing pain with some findings suggestive of complex regional pain syndrome type 2 and also reported that treatment on her complex regional pain syndrome was appropriate and that said treatment would include aqua therapy, Gabapentin and desensitization. The case ultimately settled for $175,000 via a compromise and release. Including the settlement, the injured worker received $241,168 in wage loss benefits and $54,246 in medical benefits for her work injury.
