[fusion_dropcap boxed=”no” boxed_radius=”” class=”” id=”” color=””]O[/fusion_dropcap]ne of the success stories for trial lawyers was getting acknowledgment of workers having two jobs and getting time loss paid based on both wages.  This means that if you are injured doing a very low wage job, but you are unable to do the higher paying job as well you can get paid for both.  Recently the Court of Appeals extended this concept to vocational assistance.  In order to qualify for vocational assistance, you must be permanently disabled from your regular job, and you must be unable to find work that pays you 80% of your average weekly wage.  The Court held in Chu v. Saif that your eligibility is based on all your wages.

This is a great victory for workers, and this sort of thing is why I do this work.
