Workers Compensation Verdicts

Man Nearly Loses Leg to Explosives in Strip Mine: Successful Appeal to PA Superior Court Results in Higher Settlement
An explosives company was performing blasting operations as a subcontractor in a strip mine behind the client's residence. A blast produced flyrock, a piece of which struck the client. As a result, the client's lower left leg was severed and only remained attached by a few tissues. The client was lifeflighted and diagnosed with a Grade III-B open tibia fracture. A grade III is the highest category of injury to bone and B is the highest category of contamination to the skin, muscle and tissue. Emergency surgery was performed in an attempt to salvage the severed limb and a titanium rod was inserted to internally stabilize the fractures. Additional hardware inserted in the leg included a large plate and several screws. Bone was missing over several inches of the leg, as was the skin, muscle and other tissues. Tissue, muscle, veins, and arteries were harvested from the upper back and shoulder area and sewn in by microsurgery. The client had a total of four surgical procedures performed. The leg was ultimately salvaged. The blasting company and coal mining company denied liability. After a ten-day trial, a jury returned a verdict of $350,000.00. We believed that one of the jurors was biased because of a long-standing relationship with an owner of one of the Defendant companies but the trial judge refused to remove the juror. An appeal to the Superior Court of Pennsylvania was pursued. The Superior Court agreed with our position and ordered a new trial. After this appellate court victory, the case settled for $1,500,000.00.

Man Dies Due to Smoke Inhalation Resulting in Bad Faith Claim Against Insurer

While burning Christmas wrapping paper in his backyard, the decedent lost control of the fire and called for help. When firemen arrived ten minutes later they found the entire backyard engulfed in flame. While spraying the flames, the decedent was found lying face up with a charred phone next to his ear. The coroner determined the cause of death to be smoke inhalation. The defendant insurance company refused to pay accidental death benefits claiming the death was caused by a pre-existing heart problem that was triggered by the vigorous activity of trying to extinguish the brush fire. Pittsburgh lawyers Rosen Louik & Perry represented the victim's bad faith claim and obtained tapes of the 911 call and were able to establish that the client's decedent was snoring after he lost consciousness. This was inconsistent with an immediately fatal heart attack. Forensic pathologists were retained as experts who confirmed smoke inhalation as the cause of death. This case, including a bad faith cause of action, settled in excess of policy limits for $ 537,500.00.
