The Importance of Your Doctors’ Help In Getting Maximum Temporary Disability Benefits

If you have been injured during the course of employment, even if it involves only temporary disability or illness, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, certain factors, such as your or your New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyer’s relationship with your treating physicians, may have an impact on your ability to receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.

The Significance of Your Doctor’s Opinion on Your Benefits

Experienced workers’ compensation attorneys know that a claimant’s treating or examining physicians can significantly effect how long an injured worker continues to receive workers’ compensation benefits.

The main reason for this substantial influence is that it is the physician who ultimately determines when a worker can return to work, or when permanent disability is present and fixed.

Additionally, when a treating doctor evaluates permanent disability, temporary disability is terminated because the recipient has been restored as far as the character of the injuries will permit.

As such, it is very important that both you and your New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyer maintain a close and friendly relationship with each of your treating physicians to ensure that you receive the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
