Hackensack Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Hackensack Workers’ Compensation Court for Injured Employees in Bergen County, NJ


Workers’ Compensation bars injured workers from suing their employers. In exchange for the injured worker forgoing their right to file a personal injury claim against their employer, NJ Workers’ Compensation law provides the injured worker with a right to seek benefits regardless of whether the employer, or anyone else, was at fault for the accident that caused the injury. That’s because New Jersey is a no-fault state for Workers’ Compensation. Unfortunately, employers and their insurance providers still find ways to avoid paying benefits to injured employees.

Andrew Calcagno is an experienced Bergen County Workers’ Compensation lawyer who understands the nuances of this area of law and who represents each and every client with the highest professionalism. Whether he is negotiating on your behalf with the insurance company or fighting for you in the Hackensack Workers’ Compensation Court, Mr. Calcagno will do whatever is needed to ensure that you get the Workers’ Comp benefits to which you are entitled.

If you were injured while working in Hackensack, Teaneck, Fort Lee, Fair Lawn, Paramus, or somewhere else in Bergen County, NJ, Andrew Calcagno can help you. Contact Mr. Calcagno now to go over your legal options.
