Workers' Comp Claims Against University Dismissed

Successfully defended a Philadelphia-based university in litigation involving an allegation by an employee that lifting a five-gallon bucket of paint caused or aggravated numerous disc herniations in the claimant’s spine. ​The litigation centered on expert testimony of orthopedic surgeons. The defense was able to convince the Workers’ Compensation Judge via his cross examination of the claimant’s medical expert that, at most, the claimant sustained a strain injury and recovered completely. All allegations as to disc herniations, surgery for those herniations, and ongoing medical treatment were dismissed in their entirety.
