Although New Jersey law stipulates that all workplace injuries will be compensated for, receiving the necessary restitution is a whole other matter. As the physical and mental stress weighs on you following a workplace injury, your employer will strive to limit their exposure in a compensation case. Your employer and health care provider have various means of limiting benefits, such as minimization of wage payback, minimal medical or physical therapy coverage, or pressuring an early return to work. If you have been injured at work, you need time to heal physically, mentally, and financially. Since the New Jersey laws regarding appropriate workers’ compensation are very complex, you need an experienced attorney that can handle your case by sifting through the details of your case. Furthermore, our civil attorneys will look to other avenues for potential claims, that may have been indirectly involved in your accident. Third parties can have high liability for workplace accidents and thus you can be owed large restitution from them. However, in order to receive this restitution, you need an attorney with a history of investigating third parties for injury benefits. It is critical to have an attorney present in your workers’ compensation case in Lebanon Workers’ Compensation Court so that you have an experienced advocate in this painful, confusing time.
