In New Jersey, there are two different classes of workers’ compensation claims that are recognized as compensable: These classes include:
1) Traumatic injury claims: Traumatic injury claims are claims involve a one-time trauma that is physical or psychological in nature.
2) Occupational disease claims: Occupational disease claims are claims that involve injuries caused by repetitive activity or exposures over a period of days, months, or years. Occupational diseases may include, but are not limited to:
Maximizing value: According to a study performed by the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine, unrepresented injured workers receive almost fifty percent less compensation for their injuries than those that retain a workers compensation attorney. Seigel Law will ensure that any worker injured on the job receives the maximum amount of compensation available.
Medical treatment: In the world of Workers’ Compensation, it is commonplace for insurance carriers and insurance adjusters to offer inadequate treatment, delayed treatment, or no treatment at all. Seigel Law will ensure that any worker injured on the job receives the adequate and timely medical treatment they deserve.
Medical bills: In a Workers Compensation case, insurance carriers for the employer often fail to pay medical bills in a timely fashion, or even pay them at all. Seigel Law will ensure that any outstanding medical bills are paid, and paid promptly.
Experience: Seigel Law has an experienced staff that has handled some of the largest and most complex workers’ compensation cases in the State. It has represented workers from all different occupations including: construction workers, doctors, nurses, nursing aids, orderlies, attendants, janitors, truck drivers, police officers, and firefighters, to name a few.
Since 1976, Seigel Law has also represented injured workers from various unions including: the Police Officers Union, Firefighters Union, Corrections Officers Union, Healthcare and Institutional Workers Union, Transportation Workers Union, Truckers Union, Meat Workers Union, Chemical Workers Union, Electricians Union, Iron Workers Union, Carpenters Union, Phone Company Workers Union, Laborers Union, and the Plumbers Union.
Litigation skills: Unlike most law firms, Seigel Law employs attorneys that are willing to litigate cases to ensure that any injured worker receives the best possible outcome for their case. This has the practical effect of producing larger settlements and recoveries on behalf of injured workers.
Attorney’s Fees: At Seigel Law, an injured worker will not pay any attorney’s fees unless they receive compensation for their injuries. Attorney’s fees are set by the judge of workers’ compensation and will not exceed 20% of any recovery.
