Workers’ Compensation Specialist lawyer Mark R. Schmidt settled the case of a 39 year old welder from Wilmington Delaware, injured while working in Kennett Square Pennsylvania.
The claimant was a welder at a mushroom farm, when he began to have difficulty breathing, fatigue and coughing. As his complaints worsened, he told management, and was fitted for a respirator. Even the company doctors agreed his symptoms were caused by work, but the insurance company denied his claim. The insurance company then sought their own “specialist” opinion, and that doctor attributed the breathing difficulty to welder’s asthma – yet the insurance company kept fighting. After a brief period out of work, the symptoms improved. Claimant soon found another job, but is unable to return to welding. Attorney Schmidt eventually settled the claim, obtaining all of the back due benefits owed, payment of all medical bills, and an additional $9,000.00 representing “possible” future benefits.
