$101,000 to Bricklayer for Scaffold Fall

The workers' compensation insurance company's medical evaluators claimed our client, a 70-year-old member of the bricklayer's labor union, had fully recovered from construction injuries sustained when falling off a scaffold. New Jersey Certified Workers' Compensation Trial Lawyer Gary E. Adams and our firm's medical experts contended that our client will never fully recover from construction accident injuries to his legs and hips and return to his prior occupation os a bricklayer. In fact, he can only get around with the assistance of a cane. After a contested hearing in New Jersey Workers' Compensation Court, the Judge awarded the 70-year-old injured bricklayer permanent disability benefits in excess of $101,000 as a result of on-the-job injuries sustained in the construction accident. Additionally, our client retained the right to seek additional medical treatment for these job related injuries at the expense of his former employer's Workers' Compensation insurance company for a period of two years from the date of this award; and he retained the right to seek additional disability benefits during the initial two years, should his condition worsen from the construction accident injuries.
