New Jersey Workplace Injury Lawyer

Permanent Impairment

The New Jersey workers’ compensation laws provide benefits to workers who have suffered injury or illness on the job, resulting in a permanent disability. This may take the form of permanent loss of use of a body part, such as a finger, toe, hand or foot. It can also involve injuries not typically covered by scheduled awards, such as neck and back trauma, traumatic brain injury (TBI) or psychological conditions, such as PTSD or anxiety. When you have suffered permanent impairment because of a work-related injury, you have a right to pursue full and fair compensation for all your losses. The lawyers at Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.

At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we have provided strong and compassionate counsel to personal injury victims throughout central New Jersey for more than 40 years. Our focus is always on finding ways to win your case. We don’t run a volume business, but work closely with each client we represent, taking the time to learn the details of your case, as well as what you need to move forward with your life. We are never afraid to take the difficult cases or provide honest answers to difficult questions. We will carefully gather, assess and preserve all evidence to support your claim as we build the most compelling case for your full financial recovery.

Helping You Get Full Compensation for a Permanent Impairment

The New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation publishes a chart that lists body parts and identifies the amount of a scheduled loss of use award. We will also help you pursue damages for permanent injuries not listed on the charts, including:

  • Disc injuries
  • Joint injuries
  • Lung or heart conditions
  • Soft tissue injuries

We will handle all matters related to your claim, preparing and filing all necessary paperwork, and acting as counsel in all interactions, including hearings or other proceedings.
