Assisting Workers With Partial Disability Claims
Most people injured at work understand that they are entitled to medical treatment benefits and out-of-work benefits. What workers might not know, however, is that they may also be eligible to collect a monetary award for the severity of their injuries after they have concluded their medical treatment.
If you have received a significant amount of medical treatment for your injuries you are eligible for a partial permanent disability award (PPD). Determining the extent of your partial disability, however, is not always easy. The workers’ compensation insurance company or your employer may have very different ideas about the nature of your injuries. To get the partial permanent disability benefits to which you are entitled, it is important to work with an experienced attorney.
At the Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., our lawyers have advocated for numerous clients before judges in the Division of Workers’ Compensation of New Jersey. Our firm will work hard to get you the maximum benefits available under the law. We will send you to our handpicked medical experts whose field of specialty matches up with your injuries. They will evaluate your condition and render a report that will be used in court to get an optimal outcome for your case. Our Paterson lawyers for partial disability always prepare a powerful case in support of your claim for benefits.
How Is Partial Disability Determined?
Not only will our experts evaluate your medical condition, the insurance company’s experts will do the same. After these experts have rendered their reports, settlement negotiations will commence where the parties negotiate a disability rating for your injuries. Each disability rating has a corresponding monetary value. If the parties cannot agree on this value the case will proceed to trial.
