    I had a phenomenal experience hiring Stan as counselor. He treats people with respect, communicates well, listens, but is still extremely confident in his approach. I hope I never have to hire him again, but if I needed to I wouldn't hesitate.

    How a Willingboro Workers’ Compensation Lawyer Can Help You

    While NJ law does not require workers to retain legal services when filing workers’ compensation claims, you do not want to be without a lawyer. The national workers’ compensation insurance companies have their teams of lawyers all trying to find ways not to pay you what you are entitled to. If you file your claim without legal advice, there is a good chance your claim will be denied or your benefits will be underpaid.

    If you have already filed your claim and payment is delayed or denied, Stan Gregory may be able to help you file your claim with the NJ workers’ compensation courts.

    Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits in NJ

    Under NJ’s workers’ compensation laws, injured employees may be eligible for four different types of benefits. Which of these you qualify for will depend on how severe your injury is, how long you will be out of work, and whether you can return to the type of work you did previously.

    Medical Care

    Employees who are injured at work or who contract a disease or illness at work that requires medical attention may qualify for medical benefits under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation scheme. Workers’ compensation law requires employers to have insurance coverage to pay for all necessary medical treatment, prescriptions, therapies, and hospitalizations that an employee needs due to their workplace injury, illness, or disease.

    Lost Wages

    Employees who have had to miss at least seven days of work because of a work-related illness or injury may be eligible for temporary total disability benefits. This benefit will pay 70% of your average weekly wage. NJ.Gov states that temporary total disability cannot exceed 75% of the Statewide Average Weekly Wage (SAWW) or fall below the minimum rate of 20% of the SAWW. This benefit typically ends once an employee returns to work or it is determined that further medical treatment will not improve their condition and that they have reached Maximum Medical Improvement (MMI).

    Permanent Total or Partial Disability Benefits

    Some workplace injuries leave employees permanently disabled, wholly or in part, once they’ve reached MMIt. Workers’ compensation makes available permanent total disability and permanent partial disability benefits for these employees. 

    Permanent total disability is defined as an impairment of or loss of certain body parts, including arms, hands, feet, legs, fingers, toes, ears, teeth, or eyes (“scheduled” losses). This benefit may also be available to employees who suffer a back injury or develop problems with their heart or lungs (“non-scheduled” losses).

    Death Benefits

    If you are a dependent of a person who died from a work-related injury or illness, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation in Willingboro. This benefit is paid at 70% of the weekly wage of the deceased employee. Workers’ compensation death benefits cannot exceed the maximum benefit amount established annually by the Commissioner of Labor in NJ. The death benefit can also cover funeral expenses of up to $3,500. 

    Spouses, children, and other dependents may qualify for workers’ compensation benefits. A workers’ compensation lawyer will be able to help you determine whether you are eligible.
