We are very fortunate to have the opportunity to represent many injured workers across the state of New Jersey. Below are only a small portion of THIS WEEKS WINS!
APRIL 8, 2022:
Client v. Jackson Board of Education: Obtained Workers’ Compensation settlement in the amount $288,212.65 for injuries to Petitioner’s neck, shoulder, hand and hip due to a fall at work.
Client v. Amazon: The client sustained a foot fracture in a collision accident at work, which required immediate medical attention. Despite being placed out of work by her physician, the employer’s workers’ compensation carrier refused to provide authorized workers’ compensation treatment and monetary benefits. Our office immediately filed a motion with the Court, which resulted in a Court Order that the workers’ compensation carrier must provide all treatment and monetary benefits in accordance with the client’s physician’s recommendations.
Client v. Charter Communications: The client sustained multiple injuries to his shoulders, hands and knees as a result of falling off a ladder at work. The employer’s workers’ compensation carrier wrongfully withheld the client’s monetary benefits for nearly three months and delayed his treatment plan. Our office immediately filed a motion, which resulted in a Court Order that the employer’s workers’ compensation carrier must provide treatment and monetary benefits per the doctor’s recommendation. As a result of the motion and Court Order, the workers’ compensation immediately tendered all of the client’s back pay and authorized return visits to the doctor.
Client v. St. Peter’s University Hospital: The client sustained a severe head injury at work, which required immediate care and treatment. After a comprehensive medical evaluation, the client’s doctor recommended a course treatment. Unfortunately, the carrier scheduled an examination with a different doctor who, despite the client’s pain and symptoms, did not recommend authorized treatment. As a result, the carrier refused to provide any additional care, treatment and benefits. In response, our office immediately filed a motion with the Court, which required extensive testimony of the client and our expert physician. On the eve of the workers’ compensation carrier’s doctor’s testimony, the carrier agreed to move forward with the original doctors’ treatment plan for continued medical care. As a result, an Order was entered that the workers’ compensation carrier must provide treatment and monetary benefits per the doctor’s recommendation.
Client v. NJ Department of Corrections: Unfortunately, we are finding that delays on the part of the workers’ compensation carrier are more common than ever. In this case, the client suffered a torn shoulder as a result from a work accident. Despite the need for timely care and treatment, as well as the timely payment of monetary benefits, the workers’ compensation carrier delayed both. As a result, our office filed a motion and brought the matter before the Court, which resulted in a Court Order that the workers’ compensation carrier is to continue to provide our client’s treatment. Immediately after the Order was entered, the client received his back-due monetary benefits and continue treatment.
