Todd D. Wachtel, Esq., a Partner in our Hillsborough office, recently settled a workers’ compensation case for a 66-year old man named Roy.
For various medical and personal reasons, Roy had previously lived all over the country and was in-and-out of work throughout his life. In 2017, he was injured while working as a groundskeeper for a local golf course when he was thrown from a golf-cart by a co-employee resulting in a fractured shoulder. Following extensive surgery, Roy was unable to return the workforce.
Following a Trial in the Worker’s Compensation Court in Lebanon, New Jersey, Todd was able to get Roy a lump-sum payment from the Worker’s Compensation insurance for his accident, followed by weekly payments.
When the carrier’s payments conclude, Todd was able to get Roy payments from the State of New Jersey Second Injury Fund based on Roy’s significant preexisting problems. The payments from the State will continue while Roy remains 100% disabled, which may be for the rest of his life.
