Helping You Pursue Vocational Rehabilitation Benefits
If you have been injured on the job and have a permanent or temporary disability that prevents you from returning to your old job, you have a right to seek vocational rehabilitation so that you can be trained to perform other work. Many of these benefits are available, even if you are currently receiving Social Security disability benefits. The Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services administers such programs in New Jersey, providing a wide range of benefits, including:
- Benefits for vehicle and home modifications
- Emotional counseling
- Job placement and coaching
- Physical therapy
- Skills training
- Vocational counseling and guidance
The process by which these benefits are obtained can be daunting and confusing. The office of Harold J. Gerr, Attorney at Law, can help.
At the Law Offices of Harold J. Gerr, we bring more than 40 years of experience to people who have been hurt on the job. We take a different approach than most personal injury lawyers, placing our emphasis on winning cases and getting the results you need. We are not a mill and don’t operate a volume business. We will take all the time necessary to learn the details of your situation so that we can build the best case for your full financial recovery.
Get the Benefits to Which You Are Entitled
We have a comprehensive understanding of the programs available to people in New Jersey who cannot return to a prior job because of a work-related injury. We will be your liaison with the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation Services, making certain that you have the opportunity to obtain all the services for which you qualify and to which you are entitled. We will assist you with any applications for benefits and will be your advocate in all hearings, meetings or other interactions with agency officials.
