David Stern Defeats Termination Petition and Expands Work Injury Description

A 46 year old grocery store employee from the Philadelphia area suffered a laceration to her middle finger which resulted in nerve damage. She underwent multiple surgical procedures and a skin graft, yet the work injury was only recognized as being a cut. Although the injured worker was unable to return to work and remained under medical care, her employer filed a petition to terminate her wage loss and medical benefits. David Stern not only prevented the empoyer from terminating his client’s Workers’ Compensation benefits, but he also succeeded in having the description of the work related injury expanded to include all of the injuries she had sustained as a result of her work incident. Now the injured worker’s employer must not only continue to pay wage loss benefits, but is also responsible for the payment of all medical expenses related to the expanded work injury.
