If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits. Whether you have had an accident at your workplace, or your health has suffered in some other way as a result of your employment, it is your right to file a formal legal claim for wage replacement, medical treatment and a financial award.
WELCOME TO OUR PRACTICE
You must act promptly to obtain these benefits. In order to preserve your right to compensation, it is necessary to file a claim within the appropriate time limitation. Every day, workers in New Jersey miss out on thousands of dollars to which they are legally entitled, simply by failing to file a claim. This is why it is imperative that you immediately contact an experienced attorney if you have been injured at work.
