Your case will be governed by the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act which is complicated and requires expert guidance.
You have undoubtedly heard the term “workers’ compensation,” but unless you or a loved one have ever been injured in a workplace accident, you may not understand how it works. It goes beyond simple personal injury law and allows certain benefits to be provided for medical treatment, temporary disability, and permanent disability. However, it can get confusing due to its overlap with programs like Social Security Disability, Pension Disability, Unemployment, and many others.
The workers’ compensation attorneys at KMH&L Lawyers have the knowledge and experience to help guide you through this difficult time. The first thing to note is, upon getting injured, you should immediately report the accident to your supervisor and ask for medical treatment. Ensure that your injury is reported by the employer to their workers’ compensation carrier, ask for the insurance carrier information so you can follow up as well.
