Understanding Your Workers’ Comp Claim

 

We know how it goes. You work hard for your money and know you have a work-related injury. If you have experienced any of the following, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

 

  • Repetitive motion or trauma (e.g. carpal tunnel)
  • Slip and fall workplace injuries
  • Work accidents involving operating equipment
  • Permanent disability/permanent injuries

 

Don’t worry if you feel as if the accident may have been your fault. According to New Jersey workers’ compensation laws, New Jersey is a no-fault state. This means that no matter what negligence may have occurred, you are not at fault for the injury you have suffered. However, that doesn’t mean the workers’ compensation system is easy to navigate. Your employers’ workers’ compensation insurance is going to do everything it can to ensure that your employer doesn’t have to pay you endless disability payments or disability benefits such as ongoing medical treatment. Your employers’ insurance company is going to consider the following when addressing your claim:

 

  • Third parties who may also be responsible for your injury
  • Your preexisting condition such as preexisting body aches that you may have obtained outside of work

 

In general, insurance companies try to poke holes in the claims of injured workers to avoid liability for costly medical bills, even if that is fair compensation for the employee. That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer to provide you with the best attorney recommendations in order to secure the comp benefits or settlement offer you deserve.

 

Our Immediate Advice

 

It is crucial that you follow through with the following two steps after obtaining a workplace injury.

 

  • Step 1: Immediately relay your injury to your employer and inquire about the necessary protocols you must follow, which have been determined by your employers’ insurance company.
  • Step 2: Document all costs you acquire throughout this process, such as physical therapy for your injury, hospital bills, lab work, and medical tests.

 

The third step, which is designed to help you secure your claim, is to contact our law firm for a free evaluation with one of our comp lawyers.
