Injured On The Job in New Jersey? A Workers Comp Lawyer Can Get Provide Help You Deserve!

Imagine this. You’re hurt on the job. Now you’re dealing with pain. Bills piling up. Missing work. And, probably even worried about getting better. That’s a lot to handle! But here’s the good news. New Jersey has a program called workers’ comp to help you out financially. And, a workers comp lawyer at Hoffman DiMuzio can help!

What is Workers’ Comp?

Think of workers’ comp like insurance. Only it’s insurance for work injuries, accidents and illnesses. By law, almost all New Jersey employers have to have it. If you get hurt or sick because of your job, workers’ comp can help pay for bills related to your health care and injuries, lost wages, and more. 

What Can Workers’ Compensation Cover?

    • Medical Bills: Workers’ comp pays for all the doctor visits, hospital stays, medications, and rehab you need to get better from your work injury. This includes future treatment too. So, you don’t have to worry about those bills.
    • Lost Wages: What if you can’t work because you’re hurt? Well, workers’ comp can replace a portion (around 70%) of your regular paycheck, up to a certain amount. This helps you stay afloat financially while you focus on healing.
    • Disability Benefits: Some injuries can leave you unable to work at your full capacity, or even at all. Workers’ comp offers disability benefits to help replace some of your lost income in these situations. There are two main types:
      • Permanent Partial Disability: Let’s say you’re a waiter who hurt your arm and can’t carry heavy trays anymore. Workers’ comp might give you regular payments to replace some of the wages you might have lost because of this.
      • Permanent Total Disability: What if your injury is so bad you can never work again? Workers’ comp can provide ongoing payments to replace a portion of your income. This can last for a set period or even for life in some cases.
    • Death Benefits: Sadly, some work injuries result in death. In these situations, workers’ comp helps the deceased worker’s family. How? By covering funeral costs and providing financial assistance.

Important Things to Remember

    • Act Fast: There are deadlines for filing a workers’ comp claim. It’s important to act quickly and understand the process. A lawyer can help you with this.
    • Third-Party Claims: Workers’ comp might not cover everything. Especially pain and suffering. If someone other than your employer caused your injury, you might be able to sue them for additional compensation.

Don’t Go It Alone: Why You Might Need A Workers Comp Lawyer in New Jersey

A workplace injury can turn your life upside down. Suddenly, you’re grappling with physical pain, the emotional toll of an accident or personal injury, and a mountain of bills. Lost pay can quickly add to the financial strain. This can leave you worried. Worried about making ends meet instead of focusing on your recovery. While New Jersey’s workers’ compensation system exists to provide financial assistance, navigating the process can be complex and frustrating. This is where a qualified workers comp lawyer can be invaluable.

When Workers’ Comp Gets Complicated

Workers’ compensation is designed to be a straightforward system. However, disputes can arise throughout the process. Here are some common situations where a workers’ compensation lawyer can be crucial in protecting your rights and maximizing your benefits:

    • Denial of Benefits Based on Insufficient Medical Evidence. Insurance companies may deny your claim if they believe there’s not enough medical evidence to prove your personal injury is work-related. A lawyer can help gather medical records, doctor testimonies, and other evidence to strengthen your case for benefits.
    • Improper Wage Rate Calculation Affecting Benefits. The amount of workers’ compensation benefits you receive is often based on your average weekly wage. An error in calculating your wage rate could significantly reduce your compensation. A lawyer can review your wage history. This helps ensure you receive the correct benefits you deserve.
    • Employer Disputes Your Employment Status. What if your employer attempts to classify you as an independent contractor or temporary worker to avoid workers’ compensation liability? Well, a lawyer can help establish your employee status and secure the benefits you’re entitled to.
    • Questions Regarding Eligibility for Benefits. The eligibility criteria for certain workers’ compensation benefits can be complex. A lawyer can ensure you meet all the requirements and navigate any challenges that arise regarding your eligibility.
    • Difficulty Obtaining Quality Medical Care. Workers’ compensation insurance companies may try to limit or direct your medical care. A lawyer can help you access the necessary medical treatment. In turn, this will help ensure you receive the care you need to recover fully.
