Client Testimonial | Calhoon & Kaminsky
"I would recommend anyone to get representation from Ron and Matt as soon as possible. They can guide you and point you in the right direction and tell you what's next. They don't treat you like clients. They don't treat you like you're just somebody that comes in and your name's on a folder. They treat you like real people."
An employee from Millersville, PA, working as a nurse practice educator / Assistant Director of Nursing for Genesis Healthcare Group, sustained a work injury described as “lower back, left wrist, left hip and neck sprain / strain” in December 2014, which the insurance carrier, Broadspire Services, Inc., accepted via a Notice of Temporary Compensation Payable. The injured worker had to undergo extensive rotator cuff surgery in April 2015.
A union employee from Thompsontown, PA, working as a sergeant corrections officer at a prison, sustained a work-related injury in December 2013, which the insurance carrier, Inservco Insurance Services, accepted as a left knee anterior cruciate ligament tear. In March 2015, the insurance carrier issued a Notice of Suspension indicating that the injured worker returned to work at earnings equal or greater to his time-of-injury earnings and we filed an Employee Challenge Petition.
An employee from the Lancaster, PA area, while working as a sales consultant for a car dealership, sustained a work-related injury in February 2014, which the insurance carrier, Eastern Alliance, accepted as a right hip strain. We filed a Review Petition seeking amendment of the description of injury to include a fractured sacrum and labial tear of the right hip and post-traumatic osteoarthritis requiring a right hip replacement.

An employee from Elizabethtown, PA, working as delivery driver for Continental Floral, sustained a work injury described as a left shoulder sprain in October 2012 which the insurance carrier, Argonaut Insurance Co., accepted. We filed a Review Petition
requesting recalculation of the injured worker’s average weekly wage and compensation rate because the insurance carrier failed to properly include all of his pay including full salary, bonuses and per diem pay.
A fork lift operator, for Johnson Controls, from Orbisonia, PA, suffered a work injury in May 2013, which the insurance carrier, Underwriters Safety & Claims, accepted as a cervical strain. We filed a Penalty Petition
because the insurance carrier had failed to timely pay the injured worker his wage loss benefits. The insurance carrier had the injured worker attend an independent medical examination and the IME physician reported that he had sustained a traumatic disc herniation at C3-4. The employee continued to receive wage loss benefit until the case ultimately settled for $132,500 via a compromise and release.

An employee, working as a regional trainer at a medical facility, sustained a work-related injury in September 2012, which the insurance carrier, Hartford Casualty Insurance Company, accepted as a left knee strain/sprain.

An employee from Waynesboro, working as a truck driver, sustained a work injury, which the insurance carrier, Inservco Insurance Services, denied.

An office worker from Harrisburg, working at Pinnacle Health Hospital, sustained a work-related injury in February 2010, which the insurance carrier, Inservco Insurance Services, accepted as a “lumbar/sacral strain with spasm.” The insurance carrier filed a Termination Petition alleging the injured worker could return to work without restrictions and was fully recovered from the work injury.
