Certified Workers’ Injury Specialist attorney Mark R. Schmidt settled the claim of a 66 year old tire warehouse worker from Lancaster for $110,000 PLUS funding for future medical treatment.

The claimant suffered injuries to his head, neck and back in 2016 when a tire fell on him from a second story storage area. In addition to several herniated discs and aggravation of degenerative disc disease, he suffered a concussion. The insurance carrier denied his claim unreasonably, and a Workers’ Compensation Judge not only awarded the claimant benefits, but also imposed penalties and directed the insurance company pay his attorney’s fee. The insurance company then refused to pay for treatment, resulting in a second award of penalties and attorney fees. The insurance company next sought to terminate benefits based on an exam with a doctor they hired – and attorney Schmidt defeated them again. It is usually an insurance carrier’s tactic to “wear down” the injured worker – but this time Attorney Schmidt wore down the insurance company – resulting in their acceptance of his FULL DEMAND!
