Seeking just compensation for injuries
Personal injury claims are filed by victims who suffer physical or psychological injury directly due to another person’s negligence. Our attorneys employ a practical and professional approach to ensure our clients obtain full and fair recovery for their injuries, including damages for their past and future medical bills, lost income, emotional distress and pain and suffering. We use our extensive civil litigation experience, our knowledge about insurance company tactics and our skills at settlement negotiation to obtain the best possible recovery for our clients.
Skilled attorneys protecting Turnersville workers
When you become injured or ill while you are at work, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation. This is true even if the injury or illness occurred outside of your normal job functions. You are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence. In fact, even if the injury was your fault, you may still be eligible to compensation.
Our attorneys help workers obtain coverage for their claims, including:
Waiving workers’ compensation
Accepting workers’ compensation limits your rights to other remedies against a negligent employer. A personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas a workers compensation claim cannot. Our attorneys are skilled at analyzing whether you should waive your workers’ compensation claim and seek recovery for negligence in civil court, and if you should also pursue a liable third party.
Appealing workers’ compensation decisions
If your workers’ compensation claim is denied, you have a limited time to appeal the decision. We can help you successfully maneuver through the complex bureaucratic process of appealing to the New Jersey workers’ compensation board.
