Workers’ Compensation Attorney Perth Amboy, NJ | Middlesex County | Work Injury Lawyer


As soon as you are injured on the job and realize that medical treatment and recovery are going to require you to be out of work, you need to properly notify your employer that you intend to file for Worker’s Compensation benefits. After all, it’s their duty to make these required benefits available to all employees. However, while the law mandates coverage, it doesn’t require your employer to automatically accept your claim.

If you got hurt at work in New Jersey, whether on a construction site or in an office, and your employer is denying your claim to Workers’ Compensation benefits, call the experienced Workers’ Comp attorneys at Team Law. We will deal with the insurance company on your behalf. Sometimes an employer, by way of the insurance carrier, will attempt to limit your benefits by initially denying a claim. When this happens, they know you will either go away or fight for your medical treatment and replacement pay. Most of the time, employers are not punished by the courts if the denial is eventually overturned. Since they don’t fear retribution, they can make an injured employee jump through hoops to get their benefits.

Reasons an Employer Might Deny Your NJ Workers’ Comp Claim

First things first: your employer may deny your claim, but all legitimate job-related injuries are covered by the NJ Workers’ Compensation System. That being said, you may have to fight for your benefits if they are initially denied. Rest assured, however, that a knowledgeable workmans comp lawyer at Team Law will fight for your right to get every benefit you are entitled to receive.

Most insurance carriers are willing to provide coverage when an employee makes a claim. Some carriers, however, will do anything they can to cut costs. They deny your claim hoping you will not pursue it. If your claim is denied, entirely or in part, you should be informed in writing. Some supposed reasons for denial include:

  • Employer/insurance carrier believes you didn’t suffer a serious injury that warrants a claim.
  • Employer/insurance carrier believes your injury didn’t take place during work or within the scope of employment.
  • Employer/insurance carrier doesn’t think you need medical treatment for your injury or the Workers’ Comp doctor says you don’t need treatment.

Team Law Will Fight Tirelessly for Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits

If your Workers’ Comp claim is denied, your Team Law attorney will request a Hearing with the New Jersey State Workers’ Compensation Court. It’s not up to the employer to prove any of its beliefs regarding your injury or need for treatment. It’s the employee’s responsibility to prove that the injury did occur on the job, the medical treatment is required, and that recovery time is medically necessary. We will help you prove your case. Further, in addition to Workers’ Comp benefits, you may have a third party claim against someone other than your employer who was responsible for your injuries.

What Is Doctor Shopping?

Some unscrupulous insurance carriers will attempt to limit your access to the Workers’ Compensation benefits you deserve. They send you to a doctor who examines you, possibly orders some diagnostic tests, and determines treatment is medically necessary. The insurance company then sends you for a second opinion. It is their hope that Doctor No. 2 will offer a different diagnosis, one that sends you back to work without the need for expensive treatment and recovery time.

This is called “doctor shopping.” It is illegal. If your insurance carrier has required you to seek multiple opinions for seemingly underhanded reasons, call Team Law immediately.

We will take on the insurance company and get you the benefits you are entitled to receive. We never back down to loud-mouth lawyers. We welcome the chance to prove your case. Team Law’s Workers’ Compensation attorneys will go to court on your behalf. We’ve been successfully representing injured workers, like you, in Union, Essex, Middlesex and Hudson counties in New Jersey for decades.

Summary
Title
Workers’ Compensation Attorney Perth Amboy, NJ | Middlesex County | Work Injury Lawyer
Description

Worker’s compensation is a system that’s in place to protect injured workers and their families. Every employer regardless of size, whether you have one employee, ten employees, or a thousand employees, you’re required to carry worker’s comp insurance. Very often the main breadwinner is unable to bring home the paycheck and support his family. They are just feeling the effects of having an injury on the job and not being able to work. They’re worried about how their medical bills are going to get paid, and they’re worried about how they’re going to pay the mortgage or rent or for their kid’s college tuition. The insurance company’s job is to limit the amount of money they pay on a claim. Our job is to make sure that what comes first is not profits of insurance companies, it’s the benefit of our clients, that they get the medical treatment they deserve to make them as good as they can get because these insurance companies will roll over the injured worker unless there’s somebody there to stand up for them and make sure that that doesn’t happen. The consultation is always free. We will always speak to you from beginning to end about the circumstances of your employment, the circumstances of your accident, and how did it happen. We’ll give you a comprehensive plan of action so that you can get the benefits that the state of New Jersey requires your boss to give you if you get hurt on the job. That’s what we do here, but if you don’t call us, we can’t help you. Call us, if you’re out of work, let us go to work for you.
