Workers' Compensation

Have you been injured on the job? Have you developed a health condition or disease over time because of the kind of work you do?

Workers' Compensation

If you are injured at work or develop a condition or disease over time because of the kind of work you do, you may be covered for treatment, lost wages and permanent damage, so you should see a New Jersey Workers’ Compensation lawyer.

If you have questions ask us. Tell us your story. We receive no payment unless and until your claim reaches a successful outcome. Our maximum fee is only 20% of any monetary award you receive, and will be determined by the court.

New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law requires that every employer maintain a Workers’ Compensation Insurance policy covering every employee.

The law also requires the exact same benefits for every employee in the state, including both private industry employees and public service employees.

Part-time, temporary, free-lance, self-employed, independent contractor, domestic, or migrant workers may be covered. Salespeople driving between appointments are covered for auto accident injuries. Even workers employed by homeowners for jobs around the house may be covered.

You may also qualify for a personal injury case in addition to your New Jersey Workers’ Compensation claim. This is referred to as a “third party personal injury” case because it is against someone other than your employer.
