Our New Jersey Attorneys Know Both Sides of Workers’ Compensation Law

You may face mounting financial losses, as well as a complete disruption of life. Your road to recovery can be smooth with skilled and knowledgeable legal representation.

Workers’ Compensation is Our Primary Focus
Our law practice revolves solely around workers’ compensation. This sets us apart from other firms who may only handle workers’ compensation claims occasionally. The result is that we are well-positioned to make sure you receive all the medical and financial benefits to which you are entitled.
We are experienced in handling claims for all types of workers throughout South Jersey, including the areas of:
- Camden County
- Cherry Hill
- Maple Shade
We are qualified to file claims on behalf of people in many different occupations, including construction workers, office workers, truck drivers, forklift drivers, and more. We have also handled denied claims, and we know how to build a successful appeal to help you secure the benefits you worked hard to achieve.
We Help Clients Recover All Types of Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Our Cherry Hill workers’ compensation lawyers helped injured workers obtain many different types of benefits, including the following:
- Medical: This may include treatments, medications, and hospitalization.
- Temporary total disability: These benefits are temporary and apply if you are disabled and unable to work for more than seven days.
- Permanent partial disability: These benefits apply if your injury is permanent but partial, such as the loss of an arm, hand, finger, leg, foot toe, eye, or ear.
- Permanent total disability: An injury may be ruled total and permanent if it prevents you from obtaining any type of gainful employment.
- Death benefits: Dependent family members of a fatal workplace accident victim may be eligible for benefits equal to a portion of the deceased worker’s weekly wage. Funeral expenses may also be awarded.
Workers may also be eligible for vocational rehabilitation assistance if they are unable to return to the type of work they performed before their workplace injury.
