Whether you are injured in an on-the-job accident or whether you have developed a medical condition due to the regular WEAR and TEAR and repetitive motions of your job requirements, you may deserve workers’ comp payments while you recover from your personal injury or illness. Our dedicated attorneys build an attorney-client relationship with all injured workers. We can help you file your claim and make certain you get the support that you need and deserve under New Jersey law.
NJ Workers’ Compensation provides reimbursement for medical treatment, replacement pay for time missed from work during your recovery, and a cash award if the work-related injury left you with a permanent injury and unable to return to work. However, it is not always easy to get your employer, or their insurance provider, to agree to provide full disability benefits in the event of a workplace injury. The reality is that employers, and their insurance companies, often contest Workers’ Compensation claims or dispute the benefits. That’s why it is imperative that you have the assistance of qualified legal counsel early in the process.
Your NJ Workers’ Compensation case will probably be assigned to the court in the county or zip code where you have a place of residence. If you live outside of New Jersey, then your workers’ compensation case will probably be assigned to the county in which your employer is located.
Contact our offices for a free consultation in order to know how your workers’ compensation claim must be made. Your employer’s insurance company, albeit obligated to provide you benefits, will try to minimize the compensation you deserve. They may even try to provide you with a settlement offer in order to quickly rectify the accident. Do not agree to any offer without having a lawyer review the agreement first.
Even if you did obtain your injury on the job, your employers’ insurance company may try to find a third party liable, such as the management company for the operating equipment that caused your injury. They may also try to blame a preexisting condition of yours, such as an old biking injury, for your accident. That’s why it’s important, to be honest, and efficient when it comes to navigating the workers’ compensation system. You should not be held responsible for the injury you obtained while trying to provide for yourself. Make sure you adhere to the following attorney recommendations to ensure you have the maximum potential to achieve your claim:
Report your injury immediately after experiencing it. Your employer has strict protocols that must be followed in order to make a workers’ compensation claim. Be honest about how the injury occurred, and be compliant with your employer’s insurance company. Document everything. Every expense you acquired as a result of your injury should be officially documented. This includes loss of wages, medical bills, medical care, lab tests, and physical therapy.
