We can help you sort through the details of your claim while you focus on recovering. Our goal is always to get you fair compensation as quickly and effectively as possible. To learn more about our team, schedule a free case review with an experienced New Jersey worker’s compensation lawyer today.
Your employer is required to post a poster in the workplace that explains the details of your Workers’ Compensation coverage (or directs you to this information). You can also ask your supervisor about specific rules for claiming Workers’ Compensation benefits in your department. Our lawyers can also help you get the information you need to file your claim.
If your benefits were denied, examine the paperwork you have received—and the written statement of denial—in detail. It is always advisable to get a Workers’ Compensation lawyer’s opinion, but in some cases, a simple paperwork error or missing document can lead to a denial. In others, the reason may be much more complicated. Our lawyers can help you fix the error or conduct our own investigation into why your claim was denied.
