Helping Injured Workers Recover The Benefits They Deserve
If you have been injured at work or are suffering from an illness caused by your work environment, you may need legal help to secure or retain your entitled wage and medical benefits. At Fishman & Fishman, LLC, we will defend your rights under the New Jersey workers’ compensation system and guide you through the legal process.
Has Your Workers’ Comp Claim Been Denied?
Regardless of fault, if you were injured while working in the state of New Jersey, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Whether your injury was a sudden accident or an illness that occurred over time, your benefits will include medical expenses. Additionally, there are four forms of disability benefits for which you are eligible depending on the severity of your injury and your ability to work. They are the following:
- Medical benefits: Subject to the employer’s approval, these benefits may include compensation for office visits, occupational and physical therapy, surgery and prescription medications.
- Temporary disability benefits: These are available to any injured worker while they are receiving treatment and are unable to work.
- Permanent disability benefits: These are available if the worker is left with a permanent problem that affects their ability to work or use the part of the body that was injured.
- Death benefits: The dependents of a worker who dies as a result of a work-related injury or illness are entitled to benefits, regardless of fault.
