Case Results

Our Pennsylvania and Ohio workers compensation attorneys have helped many injured workers receive workers compensation benefits and settlements after they were initially denied.

  • A retail worker from Hermitage suffered a knee injury causing an eventual knee replacement. The employer tried to avoid paying the claimant benefits but after litigation the Workers' Compensation Judge awarded the claimant her total disability benefits. The employer allowed the claimant to return to work in a light duty capacity. The case was resolved for a lump sum settlement.
  • In New Castle, a restaurant worker suffered a skin rash on her arms and hands caused by soaps and cleaners she used to perform her duties. She was treated by a dermatologist and the insurance company voluntarily paid the claimant workers' compensation benefits. The employee returned to work for a short period but suffered the same skin rash and irritation. She continues to collect workers compensation benefits.
  • A factory worker from Titusville injured her neck and shoulder. The insurance company picked up her claim and paid her workers' compensation benefits. The employer filed a Petition for Modification of benefits. We were forced to litigate this claim resulting in a judgment awarding the continuation of benefits. Before the record closed on the litigation of the petition, the parties resolved this claim for a lump sum amount.
  • A truck driver from Harrisville injured his back while working on the back of his truck. The insurance company initially paid him workers' compensation benefits. The claimant returned to work at a modified duty job. Our staff filed a petition to reinstate partial disability benefits the worker. During the course of the litigation to have the truck driver's benefits reinstated the parties resolved this case for a lump sum settlement.
  • A LPN suffered a right shoulder injury while lifting a patient at work in Polk. She received workers' compensation benefits until her employer filed a petition to terminate her benefits. Our attorneys successfully retained worker's benefits throughout the remainder of the litigation. The parties attended a mediation with the workers' compensation judge and were eventually able to resolve this claim for a lump sum payment.
  • A youth development aide in New Castle was injured while restraining a resident. The injury was repaired with surgery and the worker was eventually released to return to work with restrictions. The employer did not offer work within the worker's restrictions so the worker continued to receive benefits. The employer sent the worker for a medical examination and filed a petition to suspend his benefits. After litigation on the suspension petition the judge ordered that the worker was entitled to continue receiving benefits.
