Injured worker agrees to $16.3 million settlement

A 47-year-old construction worker who lost his leg while working on a renovation project at a landmark Philadelphia building has recently agreed to settle his lawsuit against four defendants, including the project's general contractor. The workplace accident also left the man confined to a wheelchair with a crushed left foot. He claims that he suffers post-traumatic stress disorder. The man will receive $16.3 million according to the terms of the settlement, which was announced on May 28.

In Pennsylvania, if you have been injured in the course of your employment, you are entitled to workers' compensation. Unfortunately, though, sometimes employers try to delay or deny the compensation that an injured worker needs. To ensure that they receive the full measure of compensation for injuries, many workers take legal action and consult with a workers' compensation attorney.

Pro-business judges may be hindering injury claims

A new report is arguing that big business has influenced the legal system to the point it is affecting the likelihood that an injured worker will succeed with filing a suit against an unsafe employer. This may come as alarming news for employees in Pennsylvania, especially those who believe they are at risk for an on-the-job accident. Researchers and experts that worked on the report examined many facets of this issue and found that business organizations have been financing campaigns for judges that tend to rule in favor of corporate defendants in tort claims cases.
