A Workers Comp Client Review

It is heartwarming when a client shares a review of my legal representation with me.  This Hanover client came to my firm seeking and asked for me direct to handle his workers’ compensation case. He felt that the insurance carrier was going to start causing problems. He was right. And, they always do. They sent him for an independent medical exam (IME) and then filed a Termination Petition to cease all wage loss and medical benefits.

We immediately got our client into the UPMC Concussion Center to not only line up medical support for his case, but to also get our client appropriate medical treatment that he needed. First, we defeated the employer’s supersedeas request to stop wage loss benefits immediately. My client continued to get paid weekly wage loss benefits while we litigated the Termination Petition, which took a little over 11 months. We litigated the Termination Petition to decision, in which the Workers’ Compensation Judge denied the Termination Petition and expanded the injury description from ‘concussion’ to our diagnosis of “concussion with loss of consciousness, post-concussion syndrome, post-concussion headaches, and adjustment disorder with mixed anxiety and mood” as defined by OUR doctor. We defeated the Termination Petition and got the injury description expanded so all his medical treatment would be covered. That decision was in June 2023. My client continued getting paid until we settled his case for a lump sum settlement in January of 2024.

“Where to begin about Mooney Law. I was injured in March 2022. I contacted Mooney Law for a free consultation. I went in and immediately knew Mark A. Buterbaugh was the attorney I needed to represent me. It has been almost two years and we finally settled not sue to the attorney or Mooney Law, but because of the insurance company. There is not enough words I can say to compliment Mooney Law, Mark, and his wonderful paralegal Barbara. These people and company kept fighting to get me paid and settled on nearly a daily basis. They kept me updated throughout the process and if anything arose they took care of it. So if you need an outstanding law firm for a work injury claim I highly recommend Mooney Law and Attorney Buterbaugh along with his paralegal Barbara. They are an outstanding and awesome team.”  SHAUN from Hanover
