ability to perceive sensation, and motor control of limbs. If you have
suffered a spinal cord injury in a work-related incident, you should immediately
contact a New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyer.

workers' compensation with your employer may get you the medical assistance you need. But your
employer may be reluctant to provide additional benefits.
Claim denials and delays in benefits can leave individuals confused about what to do

Are you eligible to file a New Jersey Workers Compensation claim?
- You are eligible to file a claim if you meet the following criteria:
- You suffered an injury while working on a job site in New Jersey or in
another state for a New Jersey employer

Generally, compensation claims are successful if the worker is able to
prove that the injury was work-related. This is why it is imperative to
consult a workers' comp attorney in New Jersey about your claim.
Taking the First Steps After a Spinal Cord Injury Which Occurs at Work
Spinal cord injuries can have serious consequences in the present and into
the future. Your first primary concern is to notify your employer and
seek proper medical attention. Although workers are recommended to seek
medical treatment through their employers' healthcare providers, workers
should not hesitate to secure emergency medical attention if they cannot
locate their employer.
Filing for Your Compensation Benefits
New Jersey law allows injured workers to file claims within two years of
discovering an injury. Generally, this means that individuals have two
years after a spinal cord injury occurs to file a claim. An experienced
workers' compensation lawyer in New Jersey can help you determine
what benefits are available to you.
- A successful claim may award compensation for the following:
- Costs for medical treatment and maintenance of injury
- Present and future wages lost as a result of the injury
- Out-of-pocket expenses and other incidental costs
- Disability resulting from serious injury
