Total Disability Claims
The workers' compensation lawyers at our our NJ law firm, the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, know how catastrophic a workplace accident can be when it results in total disability. The sad reality is, however, that every worker permanently and totally disabled on the job does not succeed in prosecuting their total case. We believe that a significant consideration in the outcome of a total disability claim is not only the facts of the particular case but also the effort and experience of the lawyer representing the injured worker. Injured workers seeking total disability benefits can be assured that the attorneys at our New Jersey workers' compensation law firm will fight hard and wisely to insure that they receive all of the benefits they are entitled to.
An injury resulting in a permanent inability to return to work can result from any number of accidents at work including a fall from a building or roof, the collapse of a trench, a motor vehicle accident, a heavy equipment mishap, or any other dangerous workplace exposure. Nonetheless, certain injuries are encountered more frequently in NJ total disability cases, such as lumbar disc herniation (lower back), cervical disc herniation (neck), spinal fracture, paralysis, brain and head trauma, burns, amputation, and chronic pain problems. Irrespective of the nature of the accident or injuries, it is important that a knowledgeable New Jersey workers' compensation lawyer undertake a thorough review of the facts to properly develop a total disability case and to assess whether there is any potential for a third party claim. It is also imperative that a determination be made as to whether or not the total disability was the result of a combination of injuries, one or more of which was pre-existing, such that the New Jersey Second Injury Fund needs to be joined in the claim. Every workers' compensation lawyer at our New Jersey law firm possesses an expertise in handling all of these issues and knows exactly what needs to be done to properly prepare a total case.
