[ARCHIVED] Attorney Fees for Workers' Compensation Awards Law Signed

Governor Murphy signed into law S-2145, which concerns attorney fees for workers’ compensation awards. Specifically, P.L. 2018, c. 105 requires that if a workers’ compensation petitioner has received compensation from an insurance company prior to any judgment or award, the reasonable allowance for attorney fees will be based upon the amount of compensation received by the petitioner prior to any judgment, but after the establishment of an attorney-client relationship, by written agreement, and the amount of the judgment or award in excess of the amount of compensation already received by the petitioner. This new law took effect on August 24, 2018.
