Total Disability Award for a Workers’ Compensation CaseJune 1, 2017
Thomas F. Dorn, Jr., Esq., Partner, Certified Civil Trial Attorney and Certified Workers’ Compensation Law Attorney with the Law Firm of Einhorn, Harris, Ascher, Barbarito & Frost, P.C. in Denville, NJ announces a 100% (total disability) workers’ compensation award for an injured worker who had complications following a hernia surgery.
In May 2009, Petitioner suffered a hernia and underwent surgery. Following the surgery, Petitioner developed blood clot problems and then developed vascular problems resulting in skin rashes on his right foot which eventually spread to his left foot. As a result of these vascular problems, Petitioner was unable to work. Petitioner received several workers’ compensation awards due to the fact that he reopened his case as his vascular problems worsened.
In June 2017, a workers’ compensation Judge approved 100% total disability. Petitioner is receiving lifetime weekly payments due to the significant injuries he sustained.
