Workers’ compensation (formerly known as “workman's compensation”) is a system designed to automatically compensate workers for job-related injuries. Though New Jersey employment law and industrial relationships have changed radically since the program was established in the New Deal era, the basic process for compensating injured workers has remained the same. At the Law Office of Prince & Portnoi in Clark, New Jersey, workers’ compensation attorneys have assisted countless men and women in successful claims for benefits.
Often an employee’s legitimate claim will be denied, the extent of the worker's disability will not be properly evaluated, or an employee will not even realize that he or she deserves compensation. If you have been hurt on the job and would like to make arrangements for a free consultation, contact our office in Clark, New Jersey. A workers' compensation lawyer will evaluate your situation and give you an experienced opinion regarding your claim.
|Our attorneys have successfully demanded and secured workers’ compensation benefits for our clients in claims including those involving the following:
- partial disability injuries
- total disability compensation
- fractures, sprains, and strains
- repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome and cubital tunnel syndrome
- pinched nerves
- lifting injuries, such as herniated discs
- neck and back injuries
- shoulder injuries, such as torn rotator cuffs
- meniscus injuries, torn cartilage, and all knee, ankle, and foot injuries
- work-related heart attacks
- psychiatric and psychological injuries
|Remember, your injury need not have been sustained in the direct line of duty to qualify for immediate compensation. You deserve compensation for lost wages and medical treatment expenses even in situations where your injuries involved the following:
- operating a motor vehicle on a job-related errand
- driving to or from work when the employer was paying for your driving expenses
- conditions at work
- a cigarette or coffee break
- existing heath problems that worsened due to the work conditions
- activities at a company-sponsored outing
At Prince & Portnoi we have, through experience and skill, recovered medical benefits and temporary disability benefits on behalf of countless clients. However, it is in obtaining permanent disability benefits that we truly shine. Although workers are entitled by law to permanent disability benefits for on-the-job injuries, it is almost impossible to obtain those benefits without an attorney.
Insurance carriers and employers do not voluntarily offer permanent disability settlements to employees injured in the course of their employment, and often take advantage of those who pursue claims without the help of counsel.
If you have any question about whether your claim is being handled fairly, we will be happy to provide a free case evaluation at our office in Clark, New Jersey. A workers’ compensation attorney will explain whether the law provides help for you in your situation. Contact Prince & Portnoi today.
