Workers Compensation Laws
Workers compensation laws are designed to provide fixed monetary awards to employees injured, disabled or killed on the job.
The laws are supposed to:
- Eliminate the time and expense of litigation
- Provide benefits for dependents of those workers who are killed because of work-related accidents or illnesses
In some cases, we protect employers and fellow workers by limiting the amount an injured employee can recover from an employer
In New Jersey
In New Jersey, insurance companies and employers normally take advantage of an injured worker by doing things like:
- Denying a legitimate claim for medical treatment
- Discouraging a second opinion
- Undervaluing lost wages
- Pressuring a worker to return to work prematurely before full recovery
- Refusing to accept responsibility for various types of injuries like those from repetitive stress
In addition, should your employer not provide insurance the rules covering these instances are technical, and the process sometimes may take long to resolve. Our personal injury attorney can help walk you through the process. Our New Jersey wrongful death lawyers can also help you file a claim on behalf of the deceased.

Be advised that it is illegal for employers to fire, layoff or refuse to rehire a worker in retaliation for seeking Workers’ Compensation benefits.
