Shrewsbury Worker Compensation Lawyer

Injured on the job? You are entitled to compensation.

Have you been injured in a workplace accident? Are you suffering from a repetitive stress injury that stems from a former job? Under New Jersey workers’ compensation law, any injured worker is entitled to compensation. If your employer does not carry workers’ comp (which is a criminal offense), you are still entitled to benefits under the Uninsured Employers’ Fund (UEF), established through the New Jersey workers’ compensation law.

At the Law Office of John F. Marshall, in Shrewsbury, New Jersey, our worker compensation lawyers are committed to seeing that employees receive full compensation for workplace injuries.

You should not be reluctant to pursue a claim for any workplace injury-not because you are afraid your employer will retaliate by firing you, not because your current back strain stems from a former back injury, and not because you feel responsible for an accident. As your attorneys, it is our job to protect you and help you recover compensation.

Contact us at the Law Office of John F. Marshall to arrange a free consultation with a workers’ compensation lawyer. Find out if your workplace injury qualifies for benefits.
