Designed to Protect Workers
Workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect workers who are injured on the job, by providing a way for the injured worker to be compensated for the losses caused by his injury. Our attorneys are very familiar with New Jersey’s laws regarding workers’ compensation and have helped clients receive substantial monetary awards for their suffering.
An injury sustained on the job could very easily limit your ability to do your job or even completely prevent you from working at your usual occupation. Whether the injury affects you for a few days, or for a lifetime, it can have a large impact on your life through disability, financial losses, and extra expenses for medical treatments and medications.
If you are injured at work, you must follow certain workers compensation procedures to protect your rights under the law and to improve your chances of recovering damages in full for your injury.
While most employers abide by workers compensation laws, it is possible to be cheated out of all or part of your compensation for an injury, through fraud on the part of an employer.
We suggest you contact us as soon as practicable after your injury to get advice about your rights, and what procedures to follow. To learn more about the compensation you may be entitled to, fill out our contact form or call 1-833-RINALDO.
