Our Practice Areas

 

Personal Injury: Whether your injury was the result of a slip and fall, construction mishap, or car accident, our law firm knows how to properly represent you to help you receive the medical care and disability benefits you deserve.

 

Social Security Disability: If you are experiencing permanent disability, whether it be physical or mental, you may be eligible for social security disability payments. This form of comp benefits is strictly for those suffering from a permanent injury or psychological condition and deemed disabled and incapable of achieving gainful productive work for at least one year.

 

Workers’ Compensation: All injured workers benefit from New Jersey’s mandated workers’ compensation system. According to New Jersey law, every employer must have workers’ compensation insurance, and the insurance company must cover every employee of that employer. A successful workers’ comp claim can cover the expenses of the medical treatment your workplace injury required. It can also provide you a fair settlement for the lost wages you experienced.

 

 

New Jersey’s Law for Workers’ Compensation Claims

 

 

New Jersey is a no-fault state, which means that you are entitled to fair compensation for your injury even if the work accident involved your negligence. You don’t have to worry about your employer firing you for making a claim because that is illegal. Therefore, you should not be shy when it comes to seeking the benefits or settlement offer you deserve. It doesn’t matter where you live, as long as you work in a New Jersey zip code, the law covers you.

 

Types of Injuries and Benefits

 

There are many different types of injuries but the main ones are:

  • Repetitive motion: This injury is the result of continuous strain over time. Backaches and carpal tunnel are in this category.
  • Slip and fall: Failure to notice proper signage, and failure to place adequate signage, can lead to accidents. Slip and falls can also occur while performing regular duties.
  • Operation errors: Equipment malfunction or improper use can lead to injuries.
    Falling objects: If items are not properly secured or obtained, injury can occur.

 

 

Types of benefits:

  • Temporary disability: If an employee has missed seven days of work due to a work-related injury, they should seek temporary disability. Temporary disability can also assist with the cost of medical treatment.
  • Permanent disability: If an employee sought maximum medical treatment for their injury and are still deemed disabled and can’t properly perform their regular responsibilities at work, they are entitled to permanent disability. This form of disability can also cover the cost of medical bills.
  • Social security disability: This compensation is for those who have been seriously or permanently injured and are unable to obtain gainful employment for at least a year after getting the injury. Social security disability is designed to help employees regain most of the wages that they have lost.

It is important to note that compensation benefits can match up to 70% of your earnings for your work.

 

 

Making a Workers’ Compensation Claim

 

Contact our offices for a free consultation to understand 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 give you a settlement offer 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 might 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, 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 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, hospital visits, lab tests, and physical therapy.
