NJ Workers’ Compensation Attorney

Experienced Workers’ Comp Lawyers Assist Injured Employees in New Jersey

Although NJ Workers’ Compensation is supposed to provide benefits to cover the costs of medical treatment, lost wages while you recuperate and a cash award if you sustained permanent injuries, the reality is that employers and their insurance companies often contest Workers’ Compensation claims. The best way to ensure that you get the compensation you are entitled to is to speak with a qualified personal injury and Workers’ Compensation attorney. Andrew Calcagno is an experienced Workers’ Comp lawyer with years of experience assisting injured workers throughout New Jersey.

Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits in New Jersey

If you perform services for wages, are classified by your employer as an “employee” and sustained an injury or suffered an illness while performing job-related tasks, you are probably eligible for NJ Workers’ Compensation benefits. The most common types of Workers’ Comp benefits in NJ include:

  • Medical benefits
  • Temporary partial disability benefits
  • Temporary total disability benefits
  • Permanent partial disability benefits
  • Permanent total disability benefits
  • Death benefits

It is not always easy to secure Workers’ Comp benefits in New Jersey. Sometimes, certain issues arise that can make the already complex claims process even more complicated. For example, you might find out that your employer is uninsured or your employer’s insurance carrier might claim that you had a pre-existing injury and are therefore ineligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits. A knowledgeable attorney can help you deal with these issues and make sure that you fully understand your legal options.
