Fighting For The Rights Of Injured Workers For Over 25 Years
Being injured at work can be a devastating experience. Recovering from injuries often takes time, and that is time you are away from your job. However, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits to be paid by your employer if you were injured in the course of conducting your job duties. If you are wondering if you are entitled to workers’ comp, talk to us.
At the Law Offices of Jonathan F. Marshall, we take workers’ compensation cases very seriously. We understand the impact they can have on your life and the lives of your loved ones. Lead workers’ comp attorney Dan Santarsiero has decades of experience handling all aspects of workers’ compensation cases in Freehold, Monmouth County, Ocean County, Middlesex County and all of the surrounding areas. You can trust Mr. Santarsiero to aggressively pursue a resolution to the case that is in your best interests.
Workers’ Compensation Injuries And Industries
Workers in some industries are more prone to injuries and accidents. However, anyone can be affected by an injury at work. We handle workers’ comp claims for employees in any industry. From construction work, warehouse jobs and transportation to health care workers, office workers, law enforcement officers and firefighters, we can help. Workers often suffer from a range of injuries, such as:
- Head and brain injuries, including closed head injuries
- Toxic exposure
- Broken bones and crushed bones
- Back injuries and neck injuries
- Strains and sprains of all joints and muscles
- Electrocutions, fires, explosions and other causes of burns
- Exacerbation of preexisting conditions
- Infections from injuries at work
We also assist in situations where an on-the-job accident or incident caused a fatality. The surviving family members of the individual who passed away may be entitled to compensation that can be pursued through a wrongful death claim.
The Workers’ Compensation Process
After getting hurt at work, it is important that you report the injury to your employer and have it documented. Once you have done that, you should see an attorney to ensure your rights are protected throughout the process of filing a claim. We can assist in the initial filing process and help you understand what will be required of you, including documentation of the injury and its impact on your life, as well as the requirement that you visit a doctor selected by the insurer.
If your workers’ comp claim is denied, we can reassess the case and determine the best way in which to proceed with an appeal. We can gather additional information and medical reports to ensure that there is enough evidence for a workers’ compensation judge to reconsider the matter.
