Work injury lawyer Mark R. Schmidt settled the claim of a Medical Office Assistant from Upper Darby, Delaware County for $110,000

The claimant was injured at work in 2013, and was in-and-out of work as a result of her neck and low back injuries. The large Delaware County based Hospital where she worked denied her claim, resulting in the first of many rounds of litigation. Attorney Schmidt won all back due benefits owed to the claimant. Despite the Judge’s decision, many medical bills were denied, resulting in further litigation. After another win by Schmidt, the Hospital fired the claimant. While fighting yet another round of litigation to Reinstate wage loss benefits in the workers’ compensation system, attorney Schmidt also began to explore other possible claims, such as wrongful termination. As the final court battle was nearing another Judge’s decision, the parties negotiated a settlement of all claims. The terms included all past wage loss and medical benefits, as well as a substantial amount for future wage loss.
