$245,000 Settlement

Case Study

November 25, 2015

A union delivery driver sustained a work-related injury in January 2013 which the insurance carrier, Liberty Mutual, originally accepted as strains, and with litigation, was expanded to include work-related right shoulder rotator cuff tear, bicep tendon damage, degenerative disc disease at L5-S1 and status post-fusion at L5-S1 and ultimately settled for a lump sum of $245,000 via a Compromise and Release. From the time the injury occurred until before the work comp settlement was reached, the injured worker received $357,284.56 in PA workers’ comp wage loss benefits and $77.533.98 in medical benefits.
