Providing Workers’ Compensation Help for People Throughout the Newton, NJ area
Getting fair treatment after a work-related injury
Between costly medical treatment and missed time from work, a serious injury in Warren, Morris, Passaic or Sussex County can be financially devastating. Workers’ compensation exists in the United States to give working people and their families a safety net by paying medical and wage-loss compensation to those injured on the job, regardless of fault. Unfortunately, these benefits do not always come easily; workers’ compensation insurance carriers may use any evidence at their disposal to deny or minimize your claim. When this occurs, you do not have to idly accept what the insurance company tells you. An attorney from Hollander, Strelzik, Pasculli, Hinkes, Wojcik, Gacquin, Vandenberg & Hontz, L.L.C. can help you take your case through the workers’ compensation appeals process and present the evidence you need to get full compensation for your injury.
Understanding New Jersey workers’ compensation
Workers’ compensation is an area of law distinct from typical personal injury cases. Our team of lawyers at Hollander, Strelzik, Pasculli, Hinkes, Wojcik, Gacquin, Vandenberg & Hontz, L.L.C. has decades of combined experience handling these types of cases and can guide you through every aspect of your claim:
- Benefits — There are certain benefits of workers’ compensation that injured workers and their families can receive. We can help you understand what is available and plan your case accordingly.
- Settlements — Sometimes you can benefit from negotiating a workers’ compensation settlement as opposed to receiving ongoing and incremental payments from the insurance company. Our attorneys can examine your case to determine whether this is a good option for you and then negotiate with the insurance company on your behalf.
- Types of injuries — While traumatic injuries are most common, workers’ compensation can also cover other types of injuries, such as chronic conditions, repetitive stress injuries, occupational diseases and even psychological issues. Our lawyers have the experience necessary to take on these complex and challenging cases.
- Work-related nature — One of the requirements for workers’ compensation is that your injury must be work-related. However, what constitutes injuries sustained at work may be broader than you realize. Our attorneys understand the issues and know how to approach these types of cases.
