New Brunswick Workers Compensation Lawyer

Dedicated New Brunswick Work Injury Attorney Fights for Full Financial Recovery for Injured Workers in Middlesex County and Across NJ

Suffering an injury at work can be a devastating time for any worker. When you need to take time off work to treat or rehabilitate a work injury, that means missing out on earning a living. Medical treatment can also be incredibly expensive. That’s why New Jersey’s workers’ compensation law entitles workers who suffer work injuries or occupational illnesses to various financial benefits from their employers. Unfortunately, some employers do not make it easy for their employers to obtain the benefits they need. That’s where a New Brunswick workers compensation lawyer comes in to advocate for the rights of employees. 

For nearly three decades, compensation attorney Daniel Santarsiero, Esq. at New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyer of JFM Law has worked to secure full compensation for workers trying to recover from work injuries and occupational illnesses. Dan leaves no stone unturned in demanding compensation benefits from employers and their workers’ comp insurers. Our legal team has a long track record of successful results obtained for our workers’ compensation clients, including seven-figure recoveries in cases of catastrophic work injuries and occupational illnesses. 

When you have sustained a work injury or occupational illness, contact Daniel Santarsiero, Esq. at New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyer for a free initial case review. We can help you learn more about your legal rights and options for pursuing workers’ comp benefits that have been denied by your employer or its workers’ compensation carrier. 

Types of Benefits Available in the Workers’ Compensation System

A workers’ compensation claim in New Jersey can allow you to recover certain financial benefits after sustaining a work injury or occupational illness. The compensation you may be entitled to for your injury or illness includes:

  • Medical benefits, which ensure that you receive all reasonable and necessary medical treatment
  • Temporary disability benefits, payments to help partially replace wages you lose out on during your recovery
  • Permanent partial disability benefits, which provide temporary duration payments based on the type and severity of the disability that you have sustained
  • Permanent total disability, which continues paying partial wage replacement after your temporary disability benefits expire for as long as you remain unable to work in any type of job due to your disability
  • Death benefits, payments to the surviving dependents and family of a deceased worker to help with wage replacement with costs of funeral and burial

About New Jersey Worker's Compensation Lawyer

It is important to have a New Jersey workers compensation attorney review your claim as soon as possible to see that you are being treated fairly and to ensure that you receive full compensation for your injuries. Our injury attorneys do not charge a fee unless we make a recovery on your behalf.

Do Not Sit on Your Rights. There Are Strict Notice Requirements for Reporting Your Claim

The Workers’ Compensation Act imposes strict time limitations for reporting a workplace injury. N.J.S.A. 34:15-17 allows an employer to deny a claim absent notice of injury provided within 14 days of the accident and/or occurrence. While there are exceptions to this rule, you should not put yourself in a situation of vulnerability. Our lawyers will make certain that notice in the following form required by N.J.S.A. 34:15-18 is personally served on the employer or their agent:

“The notice referred to may be served personally upon the employer, or upon any agent of the employer upon whom a summons may be served in a civil action, or by sending it through the mail to the employer at the last known residence or business place thereof within the state, and shall be substantially in the following form:

“To (name of employer):

You are hereby notified that a personal injury was received by (name of employee injured), who was in your employ at (place) while engaged as (nature of employment), on or about the …… day of …………, nineteen hundred and …………, and that compensation will be claimed therefor.”
