My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: NJ
My attorney stated that the judge recommended 10k for section 20 settlement , the case could never not be reopened again. It was stated by my attorney that if the judge recommended I probably could not do better anyway, and it be the right thing to do.
I slip and fell on a wet floor on my job, went to all doctors, back is still hurting and I was I was lay-off close to a year now.
It has been 3 years since the accident, it was stated that by back injury was due to an accident 8 years prior. Do I want to settle for 10k no way of reopening the case , this was asked by my attorney.
any thoughts? input?
