Swedo v. WR Grace and Co.

Congratulations to Matt Paavola and Brendan Pedersen for the victory in Swedo v. WR Grace and Co.  This case is a momentous decision that will change the entire workers’ compensation community for years to come.  The Swedo case finally resolves a decade long issue of credits for permanent disability benefits for injured workers who get their awards increased on appeal.  Under the old application of the law, injured workers were getting short changed when their award was increased.  Now the law will be applied so that injured workers will receive more money, as was intended, under the law.
