An employee from Milroy, PA, working for Trinity Packaging, sustained a work injury in July 2010, which the insurance carrier, PMA Companies, accepted as an “L5-S1 disc herniation (superimposed on pre-existing spondylolisthesis).” The case ultimately settled for $197,780 via a compromise and release. Including the settlement, the injured worker received $255,145.36 in wage loss benefits and $183,328.43 in medical benefits for his work injury.
