When You are Injured at Work, Cumberland County NJ Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Stand Up to Employers & Insurance

Your family probably depends on you to bring home a regular paycheck. That’s why losing the ability to work – even for a short period of time – can be financially devastating for you and your loved ones. No one deserves to be punished simply for doing their job. If you were injured while working, you should not have to pay for your medical bills. Workers’ compensation may provide: reimbursement for necessary medical treatment, replacement pay for missed time at work, and a cash award if you are disabled and cannot return to work.

The Law Offices of Craig A. Altman holds employers accountable for workplace accidents. Our attorneys have successfully filed workers’ compensation claims on behalf of injured workers throughout Cumberland County, NJ, including Bridgeton, Vineland, and Millville. We believe that employees deserve maximum compensation for their work-related injuries, which is why we will do everything possible to ensure that your employer or your employer’s insurance company does not get away with a low settlement offer. Call us today to speak with a member of our legal team and discuss your options.

Workers’ Compensation Law in New Jersey

New Jersey passed the first workers’ compensation system in the country all the way back in 1911. Under the current law, there are no minimum requirements for the number of employees that must be employed before workers’ compensation is required. Nearly every employer in the state must provide workers’ compensation coverage for their employees. This coverage should include compensation for medical treatment, wage replacement if the worker misses time from work, and disability compensation if the worker is unable to return to work.

It is often necessary to speak with a lawyer before filing a workers’ compensation claim because there are unique rules and regulations for these kinds of cases. For example, workers’ compensation claims are not heard in the standard New Jersey court system; instead, they are processed through the Division of Workers’ Compensation and handled in a special Workers’ Compensation Court.
