What Benefits Can Be Recovered

I Will Help You Receive The Full Amount You Are Owed

New Jersey's workers' compensation laws are designed to protect workers who are injured on the job or as a result of work-related duties. An injured worker has the right to be compensated for any degree of functional loss due to the injury. Negligence by an employer or an employee is not a factor in determining whether you qualify to receive workers' compensation benefits.

In many cases, an injured worker also may be able to recover a portion of lost wages through temporary disability benefits. A worker's family can be compensated if the worker dies as a result of a work-related incident.

The workers' compensation system is complex and employers are not required to serve as advocates for injured workers. In fact, employers often look to minimize the amount they pay out in benefits in order to contain the cost of insurance they are required to purchase.

In some cases, an injured worker may be able to collect workers' comp and file a personal injury lawsuit. I am also an experienced personal injury attorney. I will review the facts of your case to see if a separate lawsuit makes sense.

If you are injured on the job or have an occupational injury, it is a smart idea to enlist the services of an experienced workers' compensation lawyer. At the Law Office of Alan Rosenberg in Cherry Hill, I advocate aggressively for injured workers in southern New Jersey in order to ensure they recover all of the benefits they deserve.

The Basic Medical Benefits You Are Entitled To

If a worker is injured on the job, New Jersey law requires employers to authorize and provide medical treatment that is necessary. Unlike standard medical insurance that you may receive through your employer, there is no copay for medical treatment for job-related injuries.

Qualifying For Temporary Or Permanent Disability Benefits

If you miss seven or more days of work, you may recover temporary disability benefits. These benefits are designed to replace a percentage of your income since you are unable to earn a paycheck. New Jersey law states that you may receive 70 percent of your gross weekly wages.

If a work injury or illness is permanent, to any degree, the injured party is entitled to compensation which is tax free.

Your Advocate From Start To Finish

Any number of disputes can arise during a workers' compensation matter. An employer may state that your injury is not work related, or an employer's doctor may declare you are ready to return to work before you are fully recuperated, resulting in the cessation of your benefits.

I am here to serve as your advocate throughout. I will help you receive the medical attention you need, collect the medical records that will support your claim, and communicate with your employer or insurance provider on your behalf. Call 856-254-3755 or use my online contact form to schedule a free consultation.

All of my workers' compensation cases are taken on a contingency fee basis. You will only pay me if I recover compensation for you. My aim is to ensure that you get the benefits that the New Jersey workers' compensation law provides.
