Do You Need a Workers’ Compensation Lawyer?
Don’t assume that the work-related injury you have suffered will automatically be accepted by your employer as a workers’ compensation claim. Companies are in the business of making money. Because of that, some of them deny claims or offer to settle them for far less than the amount needed to cover expenses stemming from a work-related injury.
As an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer, the Piccolo Law Firm, LLC has a two-decades-long track record of success in getting clients the money they need to cover:
- Medical bills
- Lost wages
- Death benefits for a loved one
The Law Is Complicated
Getting injured while on the job would seem to be a simple concept, but it’s not. For instance, are you covered by New Jersey’s workers’ comp law if you’re injured:
- While commuting to work?
- While riding in a defective elevator to your floor in an office building?
- While driving your big rig off-route in order to get something to eat?
In each example, there are circumstances that will play a role in whether a claim is successfully resolved or not, such as how much control an employer had over the area or work site where an injury occurred. Additionally, court cases occur that result in new interpretations. It’s important to have a workers’ compensation lawyer on your side who knows how to use the law to your advantage. The Piccolo Law Firm, LLC will use time-tested strategies when filing your claim, producing documentation and soliciting testimony from ethical experts to prove the extent of your injuries.
