New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyers
Getting hurt on the job can be a scary and overwhelming experience. Any type of personal injury has the potential to take you away from work. When your injury actually happens at work, however, it is normal to wonder if your career is in jeopardy.
Workers’ compensation is a right for most workers in New Jersey. The law protects workers by giving them access to compensation for work-related accidents, including payment for all medical treatment, as well as money to cover your lost wages. You are entitled to these benefits, even if your own negligence led to your accident. The law also prohibits employers from firing a worker just because he or she filed a workers’ compensation claim.

If you have been injured on the job, we will help you understand your rights. Whether you need to file a new workers’ compensation claim or fight a denial of benefits, we’ve got your back.
Make Workers’ Compensation Work for You
The workers’ compensation system may sound simple in theory, but in practice it is often much more complicated than people expect. There are strict rules for notifying your employer of an accident, filing your claim, and pursuing medical treatment. If you fail to follow the rules, you could hurt your case or miss out on important benefits.
It is also important to understand that insurance companies are the ones who handle workers’ compensation claims. In most cases, an injured worker will submit a claim to the employer’s workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Like any other for-profit business, these insurance companies make more money when they deny benefits or pay out as little as possible. They have a powerful incentive to minimize the value of your claim, or to outright deny it.
Our New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers know how these insurance companies operate. We know the intimidation tactics they use to scare and to pressure people. As committed advocates for workers’ rights, we go up against these insurance companies any chance we get. You work hard. We will work just as hard to make sure you get the workers’ compensation benefits to which you are entitled.
What Benefits Can I Receive?
The workers’ compensation benefits you receive depend on the nature and severity of your work-related injury. Our lawyers will listen to the details of your case at our first meeting, and we will explain which types of benefits you can expect to receive. These benefits may include:
- Wage replacement
- The cost of medical treatment

In cases where a worker is killed on the job, family members may also be eligible to receive death benefits through the workers’ compensation system.
