Media personal injury lawyer, George Rassias and Workers’ Compensation attorney, Mark Schmidt combined efforts to generate a global settlement  for a work-related slip & fall case involving a 59 year old security guard from Philadelphia, who sustained injuries to his knee and back. The terms of the Personal Injury settlement are “confidential”; however, it can be reported that attorney Mark R. Schmidt successfully negotiated the Workers’ Compensation aspect of the case, whereby the WC insurance carrier waived a subrogation lien worth over $350,000.00, and also pay an additional $25,000.00 to claimant, over and above the amount of money paid by the Third Party defendant in the slip & fall part of the case.

The injured security guard was patrolling a religious facility when he encountered water leaking from a refreshment stand. His injuries resulted in two operations to his knee and disabled him from employment.  The defense disputed liability and argued that pre-existing conditions to his knee from a lengthy semi-pro basketball career accounted for his treatment. With respect to liability, the plaintiff secured the analysis and opinion of a food service expert to speak to the conditions leading to the fall. With respect to damages, in addition to securing vocational and economic opinions, the plaintiff secured the testimony of a former doctor for a professional basketball team to rebut the pre-existing condition argument. The matter resolved favorably just prior to trial.
