Certified Workers’ Compensation Specialist lawyer Mark R. Schmidt settled the claim of a Hospital Pharmacy Technician from Clifton Heights, Delaware County for $85,000

The claimant injured her neck, low back and right shoulder in 2018 lifting a heavy case of pharmacy supplies. The injuries and pain were so severe she traveled to her home country of India to try alternative healing methods, after exhausting all usual, western forms of medicine, including physical therapy, pain medicine and injections. Meanwhile, the employer’s insurance company AGREED she suffered an injury; accepted formal responsibility to pay for treatment of her injuries; but then refused payment every time a doctor or therapist submitted their bills. The defendant also denied the claimant was disabled, and refused to pay any wage loss benefits.

After all litigation of the Claim and Penalty Petition was complete, and the parties were awaiting the decision of the Judge, the insurance company agreed to attorney Schmidt’s settlement demand, which covered all back due wage loss, payment of all medical bills, and almost two years of future benefits.
