On November 10, 2020, Partner Michael Brottman achieved a $122,280 settlement on behalf of his client in a workers’ compensation case. His client, an auto mechanic, injured his neck and shoulder while performing auto repairs during the course of his employment.
More specifically, our client tore his rotator cuff, glenoid labrum and bicep tendon, all of which required surgery to repair. He also sustained a herniated disc in his neck, which required an injection for pain relief.
Michael worked diligently to obtain the settlement for our client to compensate him for the disability he suffered. Workers injured during the course of employment are entitled to compensation for their lost wages and permanent injury. The New Jersey Workers Compensation Act also requires that the employers of injured workers provide them with all reasonable and necessary medical treatment for employment-related injuries.
