Workers’ Compensation lawyer Mark R. Schmidt settled the claim of a 56 year old swimming pool laborer from Malvern, Chester County for $115,000.00, plus additional funds to pay for medical treatment

The claimant injured his lower back in 1991 (yes, 1991) while carrying supplies in the course of his job building swimming pools. The insurance company defined his injury as a sprain or strain, but the real injury was more severe. After basic physical therapy failed, he underwent numerous injections. Still having little relief, he became depressed. The insurance company fought the description of injury, and fought his right to receive treatment through several rounds of litigation – attorney Schmidt winning each time for the claimant. Against Schmidt’s advice, the claimant settled his right to wage loss benefits in 1996, hoping the insurance company would stop fighting – and at least allow him to get medical treatment. As Schmidt advised him – the battles continued – for 24 more years. Even with no attorney fee to fight solely for medical treatment, this attorney is well known to fight for his clients regardless of the amount – or ANY fee.

Though the insurance company was trying to wear down the claimant, it was the insurance company who was eventually worn down – offering the above settlement, in addition to the wage loss settlement back in 1996, and in addition to the extra funds to pay for treatment if the claimant is denied Medicare. If you have been injured at work, you need a lawyer willing to fight to protect your rights – as long as it takes.
