Workers’ Compensation Claims
Injured on the job? You may be entitled to workers compensation benefits provided by your employer’s insurance or compensation through a third-party claim.
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 worker’s weekly wages up to a maximum benefit
(2) Payment for emergency care and authorized medical treatment, including recovery
(3) Permanency Award after treatment is completed.
Our Workers’ Compensation attorneys also evaluate whether an injured worker has a potential third-party claim against another person or company that is not their employer.
The attorneys and legal staff at Javerbaum Wurgaft can help you understand your rights after a work accident and assist you in obtaining the maximum benefits possible including Temporary Disability benefits, Medical Treatment and Permanency benefits.
