Financial, physical, and emotional costs associated with occupational diseases and work related injuries should be covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. Workers’ compensation insurance generally covers injuries such as:
- Illness due to work duties or working conditions
- Repetitive stress injuries
- Traumatic injuries and related mental injuries
The funds provided by workers’ compensation are designated to compensate:
- Medical bills and rehabilitation treatment costs
- Lost income
- Short term, long-term, and permanent disability
Once you learn that you have sustained an injury or have been diagnosed with an illness, it is critical that you report your injury to your employer as soon as possible and complete all necessary paperwork in order to receive the funds you deserve. If any discrepancies arise between you, your employer, or the insurance company holding your employer’s policy, it is best to retain the services of a qualified workers’ compensation lawyer familiar with the New Jersey laws. He or she can help you navigate your case
A workers’ compensation lawyer from our New Jersey law offices can help you get the compensation that you are rightfully owed, and possibly more if the denial of your claim has led to further injury or incurred cost. Partner Chris Colabella leads this area of the firm’s practice.
Social Security / Disability
If you have been denied Social Security or disability benefits that you think you deserve, contact our office for a review of your case. Denial of benefits can often be an arbitrary decision on the part of a case worker who doesn’t know or understand all the facts. We can enlist the help of medical and vocational experts whose testimony may persuade an administrative law judge or arbitrator of the validity of your claim. Don’t let one person decide your future. Let our team of professionals get you the benefits you’ve worked hard to earn.
