NJ Workers Comp Question
#1
My husband is nearing the end of his WC claim. Injured in 2013, he was an HVAC tech with pre-existing health issues (heart, diabetes). Fell, injured his lower back and had 3 surgeries for rotator cuff, and torn bicep muscles in each arm. Suffered a Pulmonary Embolism after 2nd surgery. (Never had a PE before) He reached his MMI in June 2015 and hasn't been paid since. He is collecting SSDI since Dec 2015. He was also in a car accident in July 2014, which aggravated his lower back issues requiring a partial Discectomy which resulted in drop foot, so that has complicated things.

Long story short (if that's possible) our Lawyer had a hearing with the judge 2 months ago where it was determined my husband will be getting 100% disability and NJM will be responsible to pay him for the rest of his life. No amounts were discussed regarding payments or back pay settlement and the insurance company was advised to get that authority at the end of the last hearing. All that was decided then is- who was going to pay. We were told that when they get in front of the judge at the next hearing, he will sort it out and it should be done then. We were told that the Insurance Carrier can agree, but hide behind the fact that they have to get authority and the Judge is used to that happening.

Fast forward to yesterday at the next hearing - NJM sends a different lawyer in who isn't aware of the decisions that were made at the last meeting and is now asking for an extension. Seems she had more questions regarding his PE history The judge granted extension for 3 weeks from now but now wants my husband to appear at that hearing

Is this normal? Can they reverse their decision regarding total disability after the next hearing?


So frustrated and worried.
If anyone can provide any other information please let me know. Thank you so much for any assistance!
