Injured At Work In Northern New Jersey?
Some injury law firms shy away from workers’ compensation representation, preferring to restrict their activities solely to accidents likely to bring in high dollars for the firm. Perhaps they see workers’ compensation as financially unrewarding by comparison — or they simply do not want to get involved in the detail-heavy work of a workers’ comp appeal.
At the law offices of Goldstein, Ballen, O’Rourke & Wildstein, we take a different approach. We aim to be a “one-stop shop” for all the legal needs related to securing compensation for an injured person or a bereaved family member. We handle workers’ compensation claims with as much diligence as we do a third party claim against an equipment manufacturer, for example.
We Have Significant Experience With Workers’ Compensation
New Jersey workers’ compensation claims are often complex and tedious, requiring specific notice to be given to an employer within a short time period (two weeks in most cases). It is often a challenge to persuade the workers’ compensation insurer to allow the accident victim to be treated by a doctor of his or her own choosing.
Our attorneys are well experienced in the best ways to deal with these and other challenges associated with a workers’ compensation claim or appeal. Contact us to schedule a consultation with a lawyer as soon as possible after a workplace accident such as the following:
- Strain from lifting a heavy load
- Slip-and-fall or trip-and-fall injury
- Fall from a height
- Accidental amputation of a finger while using power tools
- Any injury incurred while in the course of employment
You shouldn’t have to worry about:
- Losing your job
- Using up the limits of your own health insurance
- Suffering negative repercussions at work because of time off from work resulting from the injury
