New Jersey Workplace Injury Lawyers
Protecting Your Rights in a Loss of Use Claim
If, as a result of an injury on the job, you have suffered a permanent loss of the use of a body part, from fingers or toes to an arm or a leg, you have a right to compensation for that loss. In New Jersey, as in other states, the award for a permanent loss of use is a scheduled award, or a fixed amount based on the specific body part that is no longer functional.
The workers’ compensation process can be challenging and confusing, with employers and their insurers using every potential strategy to deny, diminish or delay your claim. When you have suffered a permanent loss of use, you can find it even more difficult to get the benefits to which you are entitled. The office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have concentrated our practice on personal injury claims, including work-related injury cases, since 1975. We have a comprehensive understanding of the law and procedures governing workers’ compensation claims, including requests for damages for permanent loss of use of a body part. We are not like most personal injury firms. We don’t take every case that comes in the door, and we don’t try to settle your case as quickly as possible so that we can move on to the next case. Instead, we take the time to figure out how we can win your case and get you the compensation you need and deserve. Because of our reputation for thorough preparation and positive results, many of our new cases come to us as referrals from other lawyers or from satisfied clients.
New Jersey Workplace Loss of Use Lawyers
We handle all matters related to claims for loss of use resulting from an injury on the job. We will work closely with you to prepare and file your claim for compensation, and will be your voice in all hearings or proceedings, including any appeals of the denial of a claim.
When you seek a scheduled award for the loss of use of a body part, you will generally be entitled to compensation based on your average weekly wage before the accident. We will carefully gather and review all relevant evidence so that your average weekly wage is correctly calculated and you receive all the benefits to which you are entitled. We will carefully monitor the progress of your claim so that you don’t face any unnecessary delays, but will always put our efforts and emphasis on making certain you get full and fair compensation for your injuries.
