Somerville Workers’ Compensation
Somerville is located in Somerset County, and also serves as the county seat. The town dates back to the 1750s and was named after the Somerville family who first established it. Originally, Somerville existed as a small farming community, until the 1840’s when railroads facilitated the brick-making industry to take hold, and the area’s abundant red clay was used to build the town. During the Revolutionary War, George Washington briefly lived in the colonial Wallace House, which is now a museum. Jacob Rutsen Hardenbergh, the founder and first president of Rutgers University, lived in the Old Dutch Parsonage near the Wallace House, which still exists. Today, Somerville has kept many of its historical buildings, and the downtown area has a wide variety of shops and restaurants. For a town of roughly 10,000 people, Somerville sees a considerable number of workers’ compensation claims. When a person living in Somerville is injured on the job or suffers from an occupational disease, and subsequently files a workers’ compensation claim, the case is held at the Lebanon Workers’ Compensation Court. The Lebanon Workers’ Compensation Court serves all of Somerset, Hunterdon, and the southern part of Warren County. The court is located in Hunterdon Hills Plaza at 1390 Route 22 West in Lebanon and can be reached by telephone at 908-236-8026. Our firm has successfully litigated at the Lebanon Workers’ Compensation Court for many years, producing favorable settlements for our clients.
What You Need To Know About New Jersey Workers’ Compensation
New Jersey Workers’ compensation law is notoriously convoluted, and employers and insurance companies will try to limit your benefits after an injury. These parties will try several methods to minimize the costs of compensation. For example, they may offer undervalued compensation that does not cover the actual costs of your medical bills and lost wages. They may also pressure you to return to work before you are completely healed from your injury. Further, if you have suffered an occupational injury that has occurred over time, they will deny responsibility. Therefore, the best decision you can make after suffering an injury at work is to retain a workers’ compensation attorney who understands the nuances of the law and the unscrupulous tactics used by employers. A lawyer will make sure your claim is filed properly and litigated to ensure maximum compensation. These cases are very detail-oriented and require an attorney to sift through layers of information to develop a strategy that maxes compensation for your injuries. This is why it is critical that you hire a dedicated workers’ compensation attorney who you can trust.
