There is no set rule for restaurants in the situation you describe. It sounds like you made a settlement with this customer in terms of a "plan discount".

There is no right to a jury trial in workers compensation.
The same judge that would make a recommendation for a settlement is the same judge that would try your case and make a decision.
You are best off paying another WC attorney for a 2nd opinion.

Lawyer said I have to wait for uninsured motorist fund to cut me a check. Basically told me i was on a list and when my number comes my settlement comes.
The judge awarded me 27,000.
I have been waiting forever and I was hoping I could do one of those "it's my money and I need it now" places

I have never heard of such a thing that "your check will be cut when your number comes up."
In NJ, the practice is that the insurance company has to send the check within 30 days.

answered on Nov 9, 2020
These are both NJ Turnpike violations and NJ Statutory violations.
39:4-96 is reckless driving- 5 points. 39:4-88b - 2 points. Don't know offhand about 19:9-1.2.39-sounds like speeding.
I strongly advise you to get a lawyer.
I wouldn't pay any of them now. Deal with all at once.
