Airline Worker’s Claim Settles in Delaware County

On July 17, 2013, Pennsylvania Workers’ Compensation lawyer, Mark R. Schmidt, of the Media, PA injury law firm of Schmidt, Kirifides & Fridkin, settled the claim of a 57-year-old airline mechanic from Woodlyn, Delaware County
who injured his lower back in 1998.  The employee had been back to work
since 1999, but attorney Schmidt repeatedly fought the insurance
company to protect his right to receive periodic episodes of disability
as well as the airline mechanic’s Workers’ Compensation medical benefits for ongoing treatment for his back injuries.  Ultimately, the insurance company agreed to a settlement of $100,000.00 to fully resolve the Workers’ Compensation claim.
