What will a New Jersey workers’ compensation attorney do for me?

Having a lawyer throughout the workers’ compensation process is critical to quickly obtaining the benefits you need and deserve after suffering a workplace injury.  
 
For example, these are just a few things that a workers’ compensation lawyer can do to help you with your claim as soon as you retain their services:
 
Begin gathering evidence to support your claim
 
Evidence is a crucial part of a workers’ compensation claim. This includes obtaining work and medical records, meeting with and deposing any witnesses, and discussing your claim with an expert. In some cases, an injured worker will need to be seen by another physician to get an expert opinion about the causes of their injury and likely treatment outcomes. This is often referred to as a “Need for Treatment” exam. Workers’ compensation lawyers have a network of doctors that can help them develop a successful claim.
 
Negotiating a settlement award with the insurance company
 
In most cases, insurance companies are the ones to pay workers’ comp benefits. However, insurance companies often offer lowball settlement offers to unrepresented workers, hoping they accept the offer in a moment of desperation. By working with an experienced workers’ comp attorney, injured workers will not be taken advantage of by misleading insurance companies.
 
Appearing at workers’ compensation hearings on your behalf
 
If an injured worker cannot reach a settlement agreement with their employer of the insurance company, there will be a hearing to determine whether the worker is entitled to benefits. At the hearing, a lawyer may call witnesses to establish the validity of the injured worker’s claim. An attorney can also be of great assistance in cross-examining any witnesses called by the insurance company.
 
Investigate other potential claims, such as third-party personal injury lawsuits
 
A worker’s compensation claim is just one way an injured worker can obtain compensation after a workplace accident. The other way is through a third-party personal injury claim. These claims can be filed against a third party who caused or contributed to the worker’s injuries. Looking into third-party injury claims is important, as these claims may provide injured workers with additional damages, including those for their non-economic damages, such as pain and suffering.
