Monmouth County NJ Workers’ Compensation Attorneys
If you have been injured at work, you face many challenges, including pain, medical treatment, medical costs, the absence of income and many others. Whether your job is relatively low risk or highly dangerous, whether your injury is occupational or traumatic in nature, living with this situation can be confusing, stressful and upsetting to you and your family. If you choose the right attorney, he or she can help you navigate the complex processes required by New Jersey workers’ compensation law to obtain the maximum monetary assistance and other crucial benefits that you are entitled to, including wage loss replacement and medical benefits.
Although New Jersey state law allows your employer’s insurance company to control your medical treatment, a trained attorney will assist you in achieving the medical treatment that you require. If you have a partial or total permanent disability as a result of an injury you sustained at work, a cash settlement may be possible. In addition, in situations where you have sustained a permanent disability, you may also be entitled to Social Security benefits or pension benefits. Finally, our staff of workers’ compensation attorneys will determine whether you may be entitled to further monetary compensation if your work injury was caused by the negligence of someone other than your employer.
