Our Workers’ Compensation Department provides assistance to individuals who are injured at work. New Jersey Workers’ Compensation law provides three basic rights: (1) Temporary Disability Benefits representing 70% of a workers weekly wages up to a maximum benefit. (2) Payment of Emergency Care and Authorized Medical treatment and (3) A Permanency Award after treatment is completed.
Our Workers’ Compensation attorneys also work alongside attorneys in our office to evaluate whether an injured worker has a potential Third Party case against another person or company that is not their employer. Competent counsel using a team approach to reviewing work accidents is important to obtain the best recovery after a work accident.
