What will be the result of my workers’ compensation claim if I am permanently disabled?

As of 2015, the maximum benefits payable in New Jersey for permanent benefits is 70 percent of earnings. The maximum amount is $855 weekly. You can receive benefits for a maximum of 450 weeks. However, they may be prolonged if you can prove that you have the inability to earn wages. In addition, there could be monetary payments for certain injuries.

The Social Security Administration keeps a rate chart referred to as a Schedule of Disabilities to decide the monetary values of different types of disabling injuries. The Schedule, which is updated on a yearly basis, is also used by the majority of insurance companies and Workers’ Compensation review boards in arriving at their decisions.
