Union City Workers' Compensation Lawyer
Helping Injured Employees Throughout NJ
If you've been injured on the job, you may be entitled to a cash settlement for your injuries. The employer and its workers' compensation carrier will not voluntarily pay you for your injuries. It is critical to hire an experienced workers' compensation attorney shortly after any work-related accident to protect your legal rights and collect the compensation you deserve.
You Don't Pay Legal Fees Unless We Win!

Q:Do I need a workers’ compensation attorney for my injury case?
A:Yes, you need an attorney. If you’re visiting this site, have questions about your rights, and have been injured in a work-related accident, you may be entitled to collect money by filing a formal claim with the NJ Workers’ Compensation Courts. Only a NJ licensed lawyer can file a formal claim. If you do not file the formal claim, you will not collect what you are entitled to, and your rights to medical treatment may be affected.
Q:Will I lose my job if I file a formal claim with an attorney?
A:No, it is against the law for an employer to discriminate against them for filing a workers’ compensation claim in NJ. If you are fired for filing a claim, you must speak to a workers’ compensation attorney immediately to protect your rights.
Q:What should I do if I have been injured while working in New Jersey?
A:Notify your employer immediately. Speak with your supervisor or someone else of authority at your work. Notifications do not have to be in writing—however, it may benefit you to have evidence that you notified your employer. If you intend to seek medical treatment for your injuries, this should be requested through your employer as well.
