  • Successfully represented a medical facility where the petitioner filed a dependency claim alleging that the decedent died from alleged occupational exposure to radiation and other deleterious substances which eventually caused a brain tumor. Upon investigation with the client, it was determined that the decedent’s radiation exposure was well below the NJDEP guidelines. The matter was resolved for a minimal Section 20 settlement. 
     

  • Prevailed on a Motion for Temporary Disability benefits. The petitioner filed a Motion for Temporary Disability benefits where benefits were sought following the termination of the petitioner while working light duty due to the work accident. Following testimony of the petitioner and our witness, the petitioner’s supervisor, the court denied the petitioner’s motion and held that the petitioner was not entitled to temporary disability benefits while out of work.  

  • Successfully represented a medical facility where the petitioner filed a dependency claim alleging that the decedent died from alleged occupational exposure to radiation and other deleterious substances which eventually caused a brain tumor. We were able to successfully argue that the decedent’s radiation exposure was well below the NJDEP guidelines. The matter was resolved for a minimal Section 20 settlement.

  • Successfully handled a matter where the employee filed a Motion for Medical Benefits and Temporary Disability. After hearing testimony, the Judge ruled that an accident did not occur.  The ruling saved the client an award of medical treatment, disability benefits and permanency benefits.

  • Resolved a claim for 10 percent less than Judge’s original recommendation after claim of an injury from an employee in a delivery company.

  • Resolved a claim for S. 20 when our expert found the employee’s occupational exposure aggravated her pre-existing bi-polar condition. Before the trial the Judge insisted we pay permanency as well as continue providing her medications needed to keep her at baseline. As a result of our continued denial, we began trial and were able to draw out in testimony that while the statements made by co-employee supervisors to the petitioner were not expressed in the best manner, the statements were merited criticism. The final resolution saved the client more than $30,000 in future medical treatment as well as closed out re-opener rights.
