Experience. Results. Crosier Obtains Over $1,011,000.00 Settlement for Injured Healthcare Worker
July 26, 2023 | News
Attorney Adam Crosier of Marzzacco Niven & Associates recently obtained a significant workers’ compensation settlement for a severely injured client in Lebanon County, Pennsylvania. The settlement totaled $1,011,586.99.
Our client was employed as an administrator in the maternity ward for a major medical provider in Lebanon County, where she had worked since high school. She loved her job and the people with whom she worked, as evidenced by her over 40 years of employment.
During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, she contracted COVID at work in December of 2020. She suffered significant health complications, including some that resulted in multiple amputations, and ultimately was unable to return to return to work.
Attorney Crosier was able to negotiate a settlement with the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier, which not only included future wage-loss benefits of over $650,000.00, but also a structured medical settlement to cover our client’s future medical expenses. This added an additional $330,000.00 to the settlement, and included various orthotic accommodations for our client, such as a motorized wheelchair, a chair lift, and finger, foot and leg prosthetics. The settlement also included money for the purchase of a handicap wheelchair-accessible van and first floor ranch style home, with the workers’ compensation insurance carrier to make handicap accessible modifications throughout the home in addition to paying the client the lump-sum amount.
Attorney Crosier was pleased with this result for our client as it will help to bring stability and peace of mind to her and her family’s life. Firm owner, Chris Marzzacco added, “this settlement is another example of how our firm fights the battle for the ‘little guy’ every day. Adam’s zealous pursuit of justice for our client resulted in what is believed to be one of the largest workers’ compensation settlements in Lebanon County. The future medical accommodations built into this settlement were certainly necessary and Adam made sure the worker’s compensation carrier understood this.”
