Your average weekly wage is calculated using the 52 weeks before the date of the accident and is the gross wage, that is, before taxes. Payments in compensation are calculated based on your average weekly wage, your degree of disability according to your doctor, and the degree of disability, according to the insurance company's consultant. If your employer continues to pay you full wages during the period when you are out of work with a disability, they will have an opportunity to request reimbursement from your awards for wages paid.

From Our Clients
I would HIGHLY recommend Terry Katz Law Firm to anyone who is looking for a legal representation.
After an injury at work, Jesse was recommended to me by a coworker. Having little to no experience working with lawyers, I was pretty impressed with the degree of professionalism Jesse and his team showed. Jesse and Donna were very knowledgeable professionals who made themselves available to answer all my questions and concerns, even while handling other cases. They were not only professional but also compassionate.
I was extremely satisfied with the award that I received which didn’t come close to what I expected. This firm definitely gets results!! I would HIGHLY recommend Jesse and his firm to all my friends and family.
