New Jersey Spinal Cord Injury Lawyer

Filing Workers Comp Claims for Serious Injuries

Spinal cord injuries are some of the most serious and common injuries workers suffer on the job. These injuries can permanently affect the nerves, the 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.

Filing a claim for 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 next. The first step toward a positive resolution is contacting a New Jersey workers' compensation attorney.

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
  • The accident was caused by a job hazard or employer negligence

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
