People Who Have Been Hurt on the Job and Need Legal Help With Workers’ Compensation

The lawyers at Goldberg & Wolf are ready to guide you through this process and represent you no matter what your occupational field is.
Every year, thousands of workers across the country are involved in work-related accidents, sustaining injuries. The most common types of workers’ compensation injuries are upper/ lower back and hand and wrist injuries.
Even more, workers contract serious illnesses when exposed to hazardous or toxic chemicals in the workplace, have a greater chance of obtaining an occupational disease like lung cancer and black lung.
Even just repetitive motions of a person’s required job activities can cause long-lasting and permanent damage, like carpal tunnel syndrome.
Pre-Existing conditions are covered under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation law as well. If you have already had an injury or condition that has evidence of have gotten worse due to the tasks you perform at your job, whether it be mental or physical, you are allowed to receive compensation.

Typically, employers have more knowledge of these workers’ comp laws than their workers, giving them a massive advantage in any claims and disputes.
This can lead to limited benefits or even denial of benefits.
Workers who have suffered a work-related injury or accident are often not aware of these essential elements of a workers’ compensation claim:
- how to proceed if benefits are denied or disputed
