When you are injured on the job, you need immediate help: Who will pay the medical bills? How will I get paid while I’m out? Do I receive money if I am left with problems after my treatment? Can my employer fire me?
In New Jersey, you are entitled to receive reasonable medical treatment to help you heal, a percentage of your regular pay while you are disabled (known as temporary benefits), and an award of money for any partial or total disability you may have after your treatment is completed.
NJ Worker’s Compensation Attorneys
If you have a worker’s compensation claim and need an attorney, give us a call.
There is absolutely no obligation for a FREE consultation.
Like most things in life, you will not receive these benefits without asking. More often than not, you will have to do more than ask, you will need to have an experienced and aggressive attorney on your side to make sure your rights as an injured employee are protected.
The worker’s compensation attorneys at Bathgate, Wegener & Wolf have more than 100 years of combined experience representing thousands of injured worker’s. Let us answer your questions and guide you through the process. We offer a FREE telephone consultation to all injured employees, and, when you hire us to be your law firm, no fee is ever charged by the firm to you. At the end of your case, when we recover money for you, a judge will order the employer (usually, their insurance company) to pay part of the fee, and a small percentage will usually be ordered to be paid from your share of the recovery, as well.
In other words, there is no charge or obligation to speak with us, and there is no out of pocket expense by you to have us represent you. Employers cannot retaliate against you for exercising your legal rights, and, in almost all cases, they have special insurance to cover injuries to employees. So, don’t be afraid, be smart, and talk to us today.
