Hackensack Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

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

Workers’ Compensation bars injured workers from suing their employers.

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.
