Assisting the injured with workers’ compensation claims
A work-related injury can cause more than just physical pain. You may be psychologically traumatized. In addition, you may have concerns about missing work or how to pay medical bills. At Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law, we can assist you in filing for workers’ comp. We have an in-depth understanding of the workers’ compensation process and know how to help.
NJ workers’ compensation laws are designed to ensure that employers provide financial assistance and medical benefits to employees who have been injured in on-the-job accidents or who suffer from work-related illnesses.
Steps to filing for workers’ compensation
To make a claim for compensation, an employee does not have to prove that the employer was negligent or at fault in causing the injury, but only that the injury was work-related. We realize that when you are injured, the last thing you want to worry about is trying to understand the law or how to file for workers’ compensation. Our NJ lawyers are here to help.
Below are some of the steps involved in filing for workers’ comp:
- Notify your employer: First, you should inform your employer that you were injured on the job. While a written notification is preferred, you can also notify them verbally.
- Request for medical attention: If you suffered an injury that requires medical attention, you must submit a request to your employer. Your employer may select the health care provider who treats your injuries. If you believe the physician provided to you by your employer did an insufficient job in diagnosing or treating your injuries, you may be entitled to a second opinion.
- Contact an attorney: After sustaining an injury at work, any time is a good time to contact an experienced team of New Jersey workers’ compensation attorneys. At Brown, Novick & McKinley Attorneys at Law, our lawyers have more than 80 years of combined experience representing personal injury victims throughout the state.
Disputes in workers’ compensation cases often arise over whether the injury actually occurred while the employee was “on the job” and how much they are entitled to receive in benefits. Our attorneys can review your case and assist you in obtaining just compensation.
