Injured at Work? Our Dedicated Workers' Compensation Lawyers Are Here To Help
If you were injured in a workplace accident, Stan Gregory is a Cherry Hill workers’ compensation lawyer who can help you recover after your accident.
Insurance companies only make money for their shareholders when they deny or only partially pay workers’ compensation claims. This means that many legitimate workers’ compensation claims are denied or underpaid.
If you are not getting the workers’ compensation benefits you believe you deserve, contact our attorneys today. Your consultation is free of charge, and we work on contingency, meaning that we do not get paid unless you do.
What to Do When You Are Injured in a Workplace Accident
Tell your employer, manager, or supervisor about the accident. Immediately seek medical attention from the medical providers listed on the Notice that your employer posted in a prominent place, such as the brake room or the locker room. Then, file your claim for benefits.
How Workers’ Compensation Benefits Are Determined in New Jersey
You can be compensated for lost wages when you have been out of work for seven consecutive work days. The maximum compensation is 70% of your average weekly wage (AWW).
All medically-necessary surgical procedures, hospital stays, therapies, medication, and aids are covered by workers’ compensation insurance.
What exactly is ”medically necessary” is something that is frequently argued by the insurance companies, who don’t want to pay you or want to pay you less than you deserve. If you have an experienced Cherry Hill workers’ compensation lawyer advocating for you against the insurance company’s team of lawyers, you are more likely to get the benefits you need.
Temporary Total Disability Benefits
This is the legal term for lost wages compensation. When you are unable to work due to a workplace injury, workers’ compensation pays you approximately 70% of your average weekly wage.
Permanent Partial Disability Benefits
Again, these benefits are based on your AWW calculation. If you have reached maximum medical improvement (MMI) yet still suffer from a medical impairment, you can be compensated for that through workers’ compensation in NJ.
Permanent Total Disability Benefits
If you are unable to perform any gainful employment due to an injury suffered at work, you can be compensated for that through workers’ compensation in NJ. These benefits are a percentage of your AWW.
If you die in a workplace accident or from a workplace injury, your spouse and other dependents may be eligible for compensation. Also, up to $5,000 will be paid for funeral expenses.
