Workers’ Compensation

Workers’ Compensation

Despite equipment safety standards, safety training programs, safety regulations and precautions, and safety manuals to guide employees, injuries on the job are all too common. Accidents occur in work environments of every type, from office settings, construction sites, manufacturing and retail operations, restaurants, refineries, agricultural operations, construction sites, manufacturing plants, refineries and mines to oilfields and in agriculture.

Federal law and state laws require employers to provide a safe workplace and mandate insurance coverage designed to protect workers injured on the job. Unless covered by Federal programs, New Jersey law requires employers to have workers’ compensation coverage for employees or the employer must be approved for self-insurance.

Under worker compensation programs, a wide range of injuries and illnesses are covered, ranging from bone fractures, back injury, eye injury, work induced heart attack, repetitive trauma injury, hearing damage, loss of fingers, arms, legs, as well as death.

If you suffer job-related injuries or illnesses, New Jersey workers’ compensation provides medical treatment, wage replacement and permanent disability compensation and death benefits to surviving dependents of workers who have died as a result of a workplace injury or accident.

If you have been injured on the job and your workers’ compensation claim has been denied, if a defective product or a party other than your employer is responsible for your injury, or you are a surviving dependent of someone who has died, the attorneys at Helfand & Associates, stand ready to protect your rights.

They were able to settle the matter very quickly and helped me fit this into my tight schedule allowing me to leave to move abroad for my dissertation research on time without having to delay the trip because of the divorce. They also did all of it within my very tight budget. Thank you so much for your help and dedication to my legal matter!"  - AG
