How does the judge decide the quantity of funds that a plaintiff is to receive?

In accordance with the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act, an employee who has been permanently injured has a right to permanency benefits. The more severe the disability, the more funds an injured employee has a right to receive.

To determine the quantity of funds, the judge follows a previously created payment chart. The dollar amounts on the chart cannot be modified. The amount of funds given to the plaintiff is dependent on the number of weeks. You will be provided with a copy of this chart before entering into a settlement agreement.
