Most employers in New Jersey are required by law to provide insurance coverage for employees who are injured in on-the-job accidents. Workers’ compensation insurance companies do not always provide full and fair benefits however. In order to hold down their claim costs, they often try to minimize the extent of the injury and the care and rehabilitation services needed for recovery.
If you or have suffered a job site injury, you may need the help of a workers’ compensation attorney to get the medical care, rehabilitation services and benefits you are entitled to.
Forman & Cardonsky has been handling workers’ compensation claims for over 30 years. Because we work in the workers’ compensation field every day, we understand the complexities of workers’ compensation law. We know how to use the legal system to help our clients get the benefits they deserve.
Under the law, your employer’s insurance company gets to choose the doctor who evaluates your injury and resulting disability. All too often, insurance companies choose doctors who will try to minimize the extent of your injuries and hence the medical benefits to be paid.
Forman & Cardonsky will stand up for you. If necessary, we can get an independent medical evaluation to accurately diagnose your injury and the medical care and rehabilitation services you need to recover.
If your injury was caused by a third party such as a contractor, equipment supplier or a vehicle driver who is not employed by your company, you may have both a workers’ compensation and a third-party injury claim. This can dramatically increase the potential compensation you could receive.
At Forman & Cardonsky, we are experienced personal injury and third-party workplace claims lawyers. In taking your case, we will work to maximize the total compensation you receive from all sources.
