A Law Firm Helping Injured Workers
If you’ve been injured at work, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. However, navigating the workers’ compensation process on your own can be intimidating and frustrating. Many people are unsure of their rights and do not know the best way to go about getting their benefits.
Attorney Adam Jon Weisberg has been helping injured workers get benefits for 25 years. He can help you. Located in Ocean Township and New Brunswick, our firm helps workers throughout the Jersey Shore and Central New Jersey complete the workers’ comp process in the most efficient manner possible.
What To Do After Being Injured At Work
It is important to take immediate action following a work-related injury. The steps you should take include:
- Step 1: Tell your employer about your accident or injury. If your employer doesn’t know you’ve been injured, it can’t submit the necessary paperwork to get your workers’ comp claim started.
- Step 2: Document your injury. Take photos of the accident site, write down the names of any witnesses and take note of your injuries. All of this evidence will be helpful in the event your workers’ comp benefits are denied.
- Step 3: Contact an experienced workers’ comp lawyer for help preparing your petition for benefits.
Retain An Experienced Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Obtaining compensation after a work-related accident can sometimes feel like an uphill battle. The best way to protect your rights as a worker and obtain your benefits is by working with an attorney who knows the law and understands the process.
Attorney Weisberg has nearly two decades of workers’ comp experience. He has good working relationships with other entities involved in workers’ compensation and will help clients:
- Make the process of obtaining workers’ compensation benefits as efficient as possible.
- Represent clients who have been injured in on-the-job accidents as well as those injured by occupational exposure to chemicals and injured due to repetitive movement.
- File personal injury claims for workers who were injured by third parties — such as independent contractors or other nonemployees — while performing job duties.
Our firm does not represent longshore workers or United States Postal Service (USPS) workers. Workers in these industries need to look outside the workers’ comp system to secure injury benefits.
