    You need to retain a certified workers compensation attorney as soon as possible. The fee is contingent on your receiving an award and is set by the workers compensation statute at 20%. as you have gotten hurt at work by law you are entitled to medical care, temporary disability or what is also known as workers compensation and an award for your injury. A certified workers compensation law attorney can acquire for you these benefits. A nurse care manager can be helpful but in my experience...

    It appears there are two conflicting influences involved. First, the work accident and second the job. The first, workers compensation, entitles an injured worker to three specific benefits. They are entitled to medical care (although in NJ it is controlled by the insurance carrier), temporary disability benefits or what is called workers compensation which pays an injured worker 70% of their gross weekly wage as long as the treating doctor indicates they can not return to work and needs...

    You are going to need to retain an attorney. Please make sure that you retain an attorney who specializes in disability litigation specifically workers compensation and social security disability. Your employer closing has no effect on your claim nor your entitlement to benefits. It is in the hands of the workers compensation carrier and the law of New Jersey workers compensation. You have been injured and are receiving two of three benefits you are entitled to receive. You are receiving...

    A couple of things about timing. If your evaluations were done in November then the reports would have come in December/January. Workers compensation can vary from court to court. I usually will advise clients that when they have completed treatment the case will usually take about 9 to 12 months to resolve. I would point out that since you have been on WC for so long your case may be more complicated then the normal which may require some additional time. I would also say that if you have...

    The first thing you want to do is speak to your attorney. If in fact the employer is uninsured your attorney will first have to file the claim petition in workers compensation and then file a motion to join what is called the Uninsured Employers Fund. When a person is injured in New Jersey they normally receive medical treatment, if the authorized doctor puts the person out of work they receive temporary disability which is 70% of the gross weekly wage but there is a minimum and in 2013...

    I would make sure that your employer has contacted the workers compensation carrier. This would initiate your claim and allow you to receive workers compensation for being out of work. The form you are referencing seems to be a State Temporary Disability Form which would not be completed unless the carrier is denying your claim. Having got hurt at work would entitle you to medical care, receiving workers compensation or temporary disability paid for by the WC carrier and an award for your...

    You not only have a workers compensation case for the original accident but you also potentially have what is know as a derivative claim as a result of the subsequent fall. In addition, there may be other claims that can be brought which would require further review of the medical records and other information. However, you should know that you are entitled to receive medical care paid for by the workers compensation carrier and be paid while you are out of work and eventually be entitled to...

    Under the New Jersey Workers Compensation Statute, the insurance carrier has 60 days from the signing of the Court Order in which to pay on the judgment. Whomever the insurance carrier is sometimes dictates the speed at which the Order will be paid. Further, if it is the State of New Jersey or if the employer is a City, County or other municipal entity it will usually come closer to the 60th day. The recommendation would be that if you have not received your check by the 7th week to call...
