Work injury lawyer Mark R. Schmidt settled the claim of a 25 year old solar panel installation foreman from Brookhaven, Delaware County for $75,000.00 – in addition to all the back due money won in previous litigation
Clamant was injured when a gust of wind knocked him, and the large solar panel he was carrying, off a ladder. The insurance company fought his right to any workers compensation benefits, and fired him for ‘made up’ reasons – but likely just because he sought to protect his rights. Based on claimant being fired, several previous attorneys either declined representing the claimant, or withdrew their representation after seeing the intended defense. Attorney Schmidt was unconcerned, and fought – and WON the claim. The insurance company appealed, and at the same time began lining up evidence to try to stop his benefits if their appeal was unsuccessful. Still Schmidt was unconcerned, and ensured his client continued to receive his weekly wage loss benefits, and payment of all necessary treatment – until the insurance company made the above offer.
