New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyer for Elbow Injury

NJ Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Fight to Get Full and Fair compensation for Workplace Elbow Injury Victims

Elbow injuries can limit your ability to move your entire arm.  Because the elbow controls rotation in the arm and connects the upper and lower arm bones, even simple movement with an elbow injury can cause extreme pain.  If you hurt your elbow at work in New Jersey, the law gives you the right to receive Workers’ Compensation for medical expenses and wage replacement while you recover.

At Team Law, we have over 60 years of experience providing unparalleled legal support to workers injured on the job.  We are dedicated to building strong and innovative strategies designed to meet your individual injury and needs.  Above all, our Workers’ Compensation lawyers are dedicated to recovering the full and fair compensation you deserve.

Like any other injury claim, an insurance company is responsible for paying your Workers’ Compensation.  That insurance company is motivated to reduce their own financial responsibility—often by delaying or denying your Workers’ Compensation benefit.  

If you suffered an elbow injury caused by an accident at work, get in touch with us today.  We review your case for free so that we can discuss options for getting you fair compensation without financial risk to you.  You can either call our office or use our online contact form to schedule your free case review.

When to Seek Medical Attention for an Elbow Injury

With any elbow injury, it is important to seek medical attention as soon as you notice the symptoms.  You should also notify your supervisor immediately, and in writing if possible.  When you are hurt in an accident, you might not immediately realize that your elbow injury can impact your ability to work.  Similarly, the signs of elbow injuries caused by repetitive motions at work can be subtle at first.

You should seek medical attention if you experience any of the following symptoms:

Waiting to see a doctor can both hinder your ability to recover fully from the elbow injury and make claiming Workers’ Compensation more complicated.  Some elbow injuries are caused by repetitive motions over time.  That gives your employer an opportunity to claim that your injury was really caused by something outside the workplace.

Our lawyers at Team Law are here to answer questions every step of the way.  We can help you with your initial Workers’ Compensation claim and with any challenges you might face during the recovery process.  Call us today for a free case review.

Frequently Asked Questions About Workers’ Compensation for Elbow Injury

FAQ: My elbow injury is extremely painful and limiting my abilities both in and out of work. Can I sue for pain and suffering?

In some cases. Workers’ Compensation law only prevents you from suing your employer or a co-worker. If you were hurt in an accident caused by someone else, we can explore the possibility of filing a personal injury lawsuit for pain and suffering in addition to the Workers’ Compensation claim against your employer.

FAQ: My boss says that I can perform other duties while my elbow injury heals. Can I still receive Workers’ Compensation for my injury?

Yes. If the treating doctor says that you can return to work on a “light duty” basis and the employer says that they have “light duty” work for you to do, you are required to accept and perform the “light duty” work as long as it conforms to the work limitations put in place by the doctor. You can also continue to receive Workers’ Compensation medical benefits to treat your elbow injury while working on “light duty”, and will be entitled to an additional monetary award if your injury fails to return to 100% full function after the treatment is complete.
