$672.00/Week for Life
An arbitrator awarded a laborer of $672.00 per week for life and further awarded moneys for penalties against the employer.
- The Case
The laborer broke both femurs which ended his career as a laborer. The employer cut off his benefits because he refused to look for a job.
- In Depth Look
Mitchell Horwitz filed an emergency petition and tried the case and received an award of $672.00 a week for the remainder of his life and further moneys for penalties against the employer for withholding his weekly benefits. While the laborer could do other work, he could not return to work as a laborer. The award $672.00 a week for life represented a wage differential award, the difference between what he was capable of earning before the accident versus after the accident. The penalties were awarded against the employer/insurance company for wrongfully terminating the laborer’s benefits, leaving him to starve.
