The Basics Of Temporary Disability In New Jersey
If you are injured on the job, are under medical care and have missed seven days of work, you may be eligible for temporary disability benefits. These benefits can be up to 70% of your weekly wage. Having the counsel of an experienced Ocean County temporary disability benefits lawyer is a necessity when you’re dealing with opposition to these benefits. We will work with you to collect the evidence to present to your employer and insurance company.
You need to know that these benefits will stop once you have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI). This is the point at which you are considered as well as you’re ever going to get by the medical specialists treating you and/or the doctor assigned to examine you by the insurance company. If you are still unable to work at this time, we can help you apply for permanent disability benefits.
