What does a workers’ compensation lawyer do?

A New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyer helps injured workers get workers’ compensation benefits. While every case is different, a few of the things that an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer will do include:
 
Gather evidence of an injured worker’s claim
 
This includes obtaining work and medical records, as well as meeting with any witnesses. In some cases, an injured worker will need to be seen by another physician to get an expert opinion about their injuries and treatment outcomes. A workers’ compensation lawyer will have a network of physicians that can help create a successful claim.
 
Negotiate a settlement award
 
In the majority of cases, workers’ compensation benefits are paid by an insurance company. By working with an experienced New Jersey workers’ compensation attorney, injured workers can rest at ease, knowing that their claim is in good hands and that their attorney will work to get them the best settlement.
 
Appear at a workers’ compensation hearing
 
If an injured worker cannot reach a settlement agreement with their employer of the insurance company, the court will conduct a hearing to determine whether they are entitled to benefits. At the hearing, your workers’ compensation lawyer will call witnesses, if necessary, to establish the validity of your injured worker’s claim. Your attorney can also be of great assistance in cross-examining any witnesses called by the insurance company. 
 
Look into other potential claims
 
A workers’ compensation claim is one way an injured worker can obtain compensation after a New Jersey workplace accident. The other way is through a third-party personal injury claim. These claims can be filed against a non-employer third party who was responsible for the worker’s injuries. Looking into third-party injury claims is important, as these can provide workers with additional damages, including those for their pain and suffering.
 
While there is no legal requirement to obtain a workers’ compensation attorney, most injured workers find that having a lawyer makes this complex process much easier. A lawyer can also increase your chances of getting a larger benefit amount more quickly.
