Newark Workers' Compensation
If you’ve suffered an injury while at work, we understand how frustrating and painful your situation can be. Your injury is stressful in itself, but medical bills and lost wages can continue to complicate your life long after you have physically recovered.
A severe injury can potentially create life-altering consequences for you and your family. Workers’ compensation was designed to provide financial assistance to injured workers while they recover, but many individuals are denied benefits despite meeting the eligibility requirements.
A denied workers’ compensation claim can prevent someone from providing for their family, yet insurance companies, who may offer only the bare minimum, fail to take that into account. Our specialized attorneys can guide you through the appeals process and ensure your case won’t be devalued by an unethical insurance company. We’ve already recovered more than $9 billion for our clients and we’re eager to include you in our success.
You wouldn’t settle for less than you deserve, and neither will we. Fill out a free, no-obligation case evaluation to get started.
Who Can File a Workers’ Compensation Claim?
If you’ve sustained an injury while performing the tasks outlined by your job description, you deserve to be fairly compensated for the pain you’ve endured. New Jersey is a no-fault state, meaning you don’t have to prove negligence to receive workers’ compensation insurance. Here are a few situations that may qualify you for benefits:
- Head injuries (severe brain damage, concussions)
- Other physical injuries (broken bones, torn muscles/ligaments, herniated spinal discs)
- Occupational medical conditions (mesothelioma, radiation sickness, hearing/sight loss)
What Can a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Do?
An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will build your case to be as strong as possible and refuse to settle for less than you’re entitled to. Our attorneys can gather evidence on your behalf, negotiate with the insurance company, and defend you against lowball settlement offers. If necessary, our trial-ready attorneys are prepared to take your case into the courtroom.
New Jersey’s Workers’ Compensation Commission allows individuals to recover the following:
- Medical expenses (including medication and transportation to medical visits)
- Lost wages
- Temporary/permanent disability benefits (depending on the severity of your injury)
- Death benefits (in the unfortunate case of wrongful death)
How Do You Appeal a Workers’ Compensation Denial?
Many individuals find their initial workers’ compensation unjustly denied by insurance companies. However, you could still be eligible for benefits. Insurance companies have been known to bully injured workers to avoid paying out their restitution, which is unacceptable by any means.
It’s time to fight back. The appeals process can become complicated, so it’s important to team up with a firm you can trust. Our specialized workers’ compensation attorneys can organize the initial informal appeal hearing and ensure your case is as strong as possible.
Can I Afford a Lawyer?
Some personal injury firms will charge high rates, even though they haven’t seen the inside of a courtroom in years. Not us. We strongly believe that everyone should be able to afford comprehensive legal representation, especially after a financially draining accident. When you team up with us, there are no initial costs and we only get paid if we win. Furthermore, our fee is taken from a favorable jury award or settlement, never out of your own pocket.
