Monmouth County Workers Compensation lawyers here at Riviere Cresci & Singer know the workmens’ comp laws. As per the law it does not provide for compensation in the form of “pain and suffering” Rather, we see limitation based upon “functional loss.” A functional loss assessment is how the Monmouth County Judge will determine your compensation for you inability to perform tasks at work or in daily living.
How does this happen? After we have filed a formal Workers Compensation claim called a Claim Petition, our office will obtain the medical evidence documenting your injuries. We will then send you to a professional health care provider that has expertise with regard to your types of injuries. The insurance carrier will do the same. After you see these doctors they will author permanency reports. When it comes time for settlement these same reports will be used by both sides to reach an agreeable percentage of disability. If an agreement cannot be reached the case will go to a trial before a Workers’ Compensation Judge. The final percentage of disability, determined by trial or settlement, will then be quantified into a monetary award.

All settlements in Ocean County Workers’ Compensation Court will be subject to approval of the court. The Judge overseeing your case will ensure that you understand the terms of the settlement and hear your complaints to determine if the settlement is fair, just and reasonable. As, stated earlier you do not have to accept a settlement, but rather may proceed to trial if you choose and allow the Judge to make the decision. But know that if you do proceed to trial, you could get more than the proposed settlement, less than the proposed settlement, the same as the proposed settlement or perhaps nothing at all. The Judge will tell you this.

Paul worked on a tax assessment case for my husband and I. Our town assessed our house and as a result our taxes were due to increase. Paul was excellent and time efficient. He fought our town to have the house re-assessed and as a result our taxes did not increase and we got are due for a refund from the township. Thanks so much for a job well done!

I've been extremely taken aback by the acrimonious demeanor I've read, in the reviews, regarding The law firm of Riviere Cresci & Singer but specifically Mr, Paul Riviere. Esq. I first became acquainted with Mr. Riviere after I suffered an automobile accident. I had the pleasure of meeting with Mr. Riveire, along with other perspective attorney's, while looking for representation. After meeting with Mr. Reviere I knew instantly that he was the man I was going to hire. Mr. Riviere proved to be the right choice not only from his business acumen but his personal interest as well in my health and welfare. I would highly recommend this firm and Mr. Reviere if you are looking for an established firm with a history of excellent client-attorney interaction.

Paul worked on an expongment case for me that I thought would never go thru. Paul was very professional and really helped direct me to what I needed to do in order for him to get the job done. I can't thank him enough for his hard work. I recommend Paul to anyone for any case that they would need a lawyer for.
