We are well known for only bringing legitimate claims, which makes the opposition take our cases seriously.

Seeking Compensation for Your Disability under NJ Workers’ Compensation Law
Workers’ compensation law in New Jersey specifies award amounts for every kind of injury, such as the amputation of a finger, a hand or a foot. Losing a middle finger below the first knuckle, for instance, is compensated with an award equal to 25 weeks of pay.
The law also specifies awards for catastrophic workplace injuries that result in permanent disability. These injuries include:
- Traumatic brain injury (TBI) resulting in permanent brain damage and rendering the injury victim unemployable
- Neck and spinal injuries causing quadriplegia or paraplegia
- Chronic and persistent pain syndromes
- Orthopedic and soft tissue injuries that hinder full function, such as torn rotator cuff, herniated disk, knee injury or shoulder injury
- Mental injuries, including post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), unipolar depression, bipolar syndrome and high anxiety
- Serious lung and heart conditions
To qualify for permanent disability benefits, you must show that your ability to work is reduced to the permanent disability level due to age, training or experience. You will be examined by two doctors, one of them to be chosen by you.
Our lawyers understand New Jersey workers’ compensation law and will review your insurance policy to ensure that you are receiving all of the coverage you pay for. We will also hold the negligent parties accountable and pursue all avenues of compensation on your behalf.
