>PA Workmans Comp Settlements

Some recent settlements of mine:

$170,000.00 for PTSD and back injury

$125,000.00- post-concussive syndrome

$160,000.00- multiple injuries

$75,000.00- back injury

$15,000.00- back injury

$80,000.00- back injury

$75,000.00- back injury

$25,000.00- back injury

$50,000.00- shoulder injury

As you can see, settlements range in scope. The amounts depend on many factors -the most important of which is loss of earning power. Other factors include whether a petition is pending, whether objective findings support the subjective complaints, average weekly wage of the employee, whether an IRE has been performed, whether a Labor Market Survey has been completed, extent of injury, credibility of doctors involved, whether future medical treatment is needed, etc.

Note: Pain and Suffering does NOT apply in Pennsylvania Workers Comp. Fault/negligence is not an issue. Earning power is the focus.

>Impairment Rating Evaluation- Pennsylvania Workers Comp

>What is an impairment rating evaluation, otherwise known as an IRE? It is an examination that the insurance company sets up in your PA Workmans Comp case, after you receive 2 years of checks for total disability, in which a doctor examines you and determines whether your total body impairment as it relates to your accepted work injuries, is at 50% or above. If so, you can receive checks indefinitely. If it’s below 50%, then you are converted from total disability to partial and can only receive a maximum of 9.5 years worth of wage loss checks. It does not change the amount of the checks, but it puts a ceiling on how long you can receive them- limiting the exposure of the insurance company. In the vast majority of cases, the impairment rating is well below 50%.
