This workers’ compensation client, a Philadelphia contractor, sustained an electrical injury as a result of an explosion at a job site. The insurance company initially refused to recognize all of the injuries sustained by our client. We filed a Petition to Review Compensation Benefits, which was assigned to a workers’ compensation judge in Philadelphia. After obtaining a decision acknowledging all of the injuries sustained by our client, we were able to obtain a lump-sum settlement without compromising on the injured worker’s ability to obtain ongoing medical treatment to be paid for by the workers’ compensation insurance company. The insurance company continues to pay for our client’s medical treatment.
