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
My experience with Terry Katz & Assoc. had been a super positive one!
They've represented me for over a year now (and will continue to do so) due to the impressive positive results they achieved for me, in my fight for the proper $$ Workman's Compensation I deserved from my (on the job) work related accident.
My legal team at T. Katz were *honest with me from the onset (*THAT was much appreciated) saying my particular case will face challenges, and THEY DID, but ALL those challenges, were met, and overcome, one after the other !!!
Go with them if you're looking for a top notch law firm!
