Mover Receives Workers' Comp Benefits | Work Injury Lawyer | $145,000 Settlement

April 26, 2013

A mover injured his lower back while pulling out walking boards from the moving truck. He was unable to continue working, so the employer began paying him workers’ compensation benefits. He eventually returned to work, but was forced to stop working due to his pain. He then underwent lumbar fusion surgery. The employer filed a utilization review concerning the procedure. The procedure was found neither reasonable nor necessary. David Stern filed a petition to establish that the procedure was both reasonable and necessary for the work-related injury, and to ensure payment of the surgical bill. In the process of litigating the petition, Mr. Stern settled the case for $145,000.00.
