An employee from Reading, PA, working for Exide Technologies, sustained a work injury described as a left shoulder strain in November 2011 which the insurance carrier, Risk Enterprise Management, accepted. The insurance carrier filed a Modification Petition based upon results of a Labor Market Survey that had been performed. The injured worker continued to receive wage loss benefits and a Mediation was held while the case was actively being litigated. The wage loss portion of the case ultimately settled for $186,000 via a Compromise and Release. The insurance carrier remains liable for the injured worker’s medical bills related to his injury.
