Hoboken Workers’ Compensation

Hoboken is located in Hudson County, New Jersey on the west bank of the Hudson River. Hoboken is one of the fastest growing cities in New Jersey and is home to over 50,000 people. As a part of the New York metropolitan area, Hoboken is a major transportation network for the tri state region and especially into New York City. The growing economy of Hoboken is supported by various large employers such as Stevens Institute of Technology, who as of 2014 employed 1,285 full time employees, John Wiley & Sons, Marsh USA, Hoboken University Medical Center, Academy Bus Tours, and others. Due to high employment in the area, citizens of Hoboken file a considerable number of workers’ compensation claims. If you live in Hoboken and initiate a workers’ compensation proceeding, your case will be heard at the Jersey City Workers’ Compensation Court. The Jersey City Workers’ Compensation Court handles all workers’ compensation claims filed in Hudson County and is located at 438 Summit Avenue on the third floor, in Jersey City. The court can be reached at (201) 217-7205. To initiate a workers’ compensation claim you can either file a formal Claim Petition or an Application for an Informal Hearing. In either circumstance, the decision to hire an attorney can make the difference of hundreds of thousands of dollars in compensation for your injury.

What you Need to Know About Workers’ Compensation

The first step to take after being injured in accident at work is to seek medical attention. Always remember to save copies of your medical records as they will be crucial to your case. Next, you will need to notify your employer, the faster the better. Waiting too long to notify your employer of an injury can prevent you from receiving compensation. An attorney will help you with the filing process and ensure that you are following the law. Although New Jersey workers’ compensation law was designed to efficiently dispense benefits to injured employees, insurance companies debauch the process by using unscrupulous strategies to reduce their payout. For example, as medical bills begin to pile up and you have lost the ability to earn wages, the insurance carrier, aware of your desperation, will offer a settlement amount far below what you are entitled to. At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we refuse to allow you to be taken advantage of. Our team of attorneys will aggressively pursue a settlement that grants you full compensation for your injuries, including medical costs and lost wages.
