Sometimes, people who have been injured on the job or who have become ill as a result of their work environment are hesitant to file a New Jersey workers’ compensation claim, because they are concerned about retaliation and/or termination.
Our Sussex County Job Injury Lawyers Protect the Rights of Injured Workers Statewide
The attorneys at Forster Arbore Velez have extensive experience representing clients in many different types of workers’ compensation claims. We accept cases involving all types of work-related accidents, injuries and illnesses, from sprains, strains and falls to broken bones, spinal injuries, paralysis and wrongful death.
Some accidents are caused by the negligence of a third party. For example, if your company hired a contractor to make building repairs, and they left equipment in the walkways that caused you to fall, you may have a third-party claim, which will compensate you more fully. Our legal team has 40 years of experience obtaining maximum injury settlements for our clients.
We offer contingency fee services to our personal injury and wrongful death clients – you owe us nothing unless we settle your case.
In some cases, people who have suffered a soft tissue injury, such as a strained neck or back, will dismiss it as a minor injury, and they assume it will eventually heal. However, the seriousness of these injuries may become apparent only weeks or months later. Delayed action can negatively impact a workers’ comp claim, especially if there was insufficient documentation of your accident or injuries.
If you or a loved one has been injured on the job, you may have questions such as:
- What benefits am I entitled to?
- How can I determine if there is a third party at fault?
- Should I document my own injuries?
- Is there a limit to the time I have to make a claim?
We provide answers to the many questions that injured people have after suffering a work-related illness or injury. We invite you to contact us to arrange a free initial legal consultation with one of our Morris County workers’ compensation lawyers. We will listen to your concerns, answer your questions, and advise you of your legal rights and your options.
