Worker’s Comp Lawyers Defending Clients Throughout New Jersey
Our team of experienced legal professionals knows that employers and their insurers routinely dispute and deny workers' compensation claims filed by injured employees. That is why we are here to help workers in New Jersey pursue the compensation they are entitled to for their work-related injuries.
We understand that suffering an injury can complicate your life and cause you a great deal of stress from all of the medical care and treatments you need to recover and get back to work. This stress is only compounded when you can’t get an insurance company to approve a specific medical procedure or a specific diagnostic test that you need.
There are a variety of reasons medical treatments are denied by insurers and employers, including:
- Stalling and delaying the claim in hopes that the employee is injured in another incident that would no longer make them liable.
- Claiming the injured worker waited too long to request medical treatment.
- Stalling and delaying the claim so that the worker becomes frustrated and no longer pursues the claim.

Do I need an attorney if I've already been offered a settlement?
The offer you received from the insurance company is almost certainly less than what you are entitled to, by a significant margin. Insurance companies, just like any other business, are structured to maximize their own profits, and in addition to offering a minimal amount in any settlement, they will also commonly employ aggressive tactics against claimants like you to discourage requests for full compensation. We can not only advise you of what your case is really worth, but also provide skilled representation to help you recover damages.
How much is my case worth?
Each personal injury case is unique, and your attorney will consult with you in detail to help you determine the full value of your claim. In any fair settlement, you should expect to receive enough money to cover all your medical bills, from emergency treatment at the scene of the accident to rehabilitative care to help you fully recover. Claims of this nature should also cover the amount of income you will lose due to the injury from missing work or inability to perform on your job, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
A variety of factors will play into how long it takes to get your insurance settlement, from the availability of evidence to support your claim to how cooperative the insurance company is and how effectively you can prepare your case. At our firm, our legal team takes every case seriously and we will do everything possible to achieve a successful resolution for you. We will also keep you informed throughout the entire process about what you may be up against and how long you can expect your case to take.
