You get up every morning and go to work to earn a living and provide for your family. However, if you get injured at work, your health and your family’s ability to make ends meet may suffer dramatically. Workers’ Compensation benefits are available to help employees who have workplace injuries. The benefits pay for medical and living expenses. However, although New Jersey labor laws require your employer to provide you with Workers’ Comp insurance, laws do not dictate the way insurance companies handle claims. Often, these companies will fight injured workers every step of the way in an effort to limit their own liability and expense. Allow us to deal with the insurance companies on your behalf.
Team Law’s Workers’ Compensation lawyers believe hard-working NJ residents in Edison, Elizabeth, Newark, and Orange, who have been injured at work, should not have to face the fight of their lives going up against insurance companies. When you are out of work because of an injury, Team Law will go to work for you. If your loved one suffered an untimely death due to a workplace accident, we will make sure the family is compensated with death benefits. We’ll take on your fight and work tirelessly to get you the Workers’ Compensation benefits you deserve and need so that you can focus on your health and not your bills. We will make sure that all deadlines are met and can also re-open an existing Workers’ Compensation claim.
It makes sense to think that if you have been injured on the job, you can legally hold your employer responsible. This is not true; you cannot sue your employer for injuries sustained at work. You may, however, be able to file a third-party liability lawsuit. Your Team Law workers’ compensation lawyer can explain your rights.
That being said, regardless of how you were injured in the workplace, you can file for Workers’ Compensation benefits. Your New Jersey employer is required by law to have an insurance policy in case you do get injured. This policy should provide several benefits, including:
Insurance companies want to limit their liability and will use a variety of tactics to delay your medical treatment (or cut it off before you are completely healed) and delay your replacement paychecks. Ultimately, it’s not that the insurance companies are evil; they are doing their jobs. They want to limit financial liability on claims. They will do whatever it takes to make that happen, including denying benefits, attempting to curtail your medical treatment too soon, and arguing against your permanent disability status. If the insurance company tries to deny your workers’ comp claim, contact Team Law right away.
