Workers' Compensation Overview

It is often stated that New Jersey's workers' compensation system is designed to protect both the employee and the employer in the event of an on-the-job injury.

While that may be true in theory, obtaining full and fair workers' compensation payments can be a complex and frustrating process that often leaves injured workers feeling as if the system is designed to work against them.

100 Years Of Combined Legal Experience

Selikoff & Cohen, P.A., in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, provides experienced representation for injured workers and disabled individuals in New Jersey workers' compensation cases. Our attorneys have more than 100 years of combined experience representing workers and fighting to protect their rights.

Your employer's insurance company may offer substantially less than you need to cover medical bills and lost wages. Or perhaps your claim has been denied completely. It is important to know that you have options. We clarify what benefits you can expect and help you obtain them.

Denied Workers' Compensation Claims

Our attorneys help injured workers challenge denied claims and maximize the benefits they receive in order to restore their immediate and future financial security. Often, injured workers who call us have received notices from the insurance company that they do not understand.

Involving us early in the process allows us to take over communication with your employer's insurance provider, ensuring that its representatives receive all of the claims and forms they request. We welcome and work with injured workers from any industry in the private and public sectors.

Injured While Working At A Public Sector Job?

Over the years, our firm has established strong working relationships with public sector employees, representing school employees, police, firefighters and others in labor law, employment law and workers' comp cases.

Workers' compensation laws affect public employees differently than they do employees from the private sector. Public employees often have the potential to receive more benefits than private workers, yet it can be more difficult for them to secure those benefits.

The lawyers at Selikoff & Cohen, P.A., have extensive experience addressing the unique needs of public sector workers in these cases and other areas of law.

No Attorneys Fees Unless We Win Your Case

We welcome the opportunity to review the facts of your case and provide a straightforward assessment. It is important to note that attorney fees for workers' compensation cases are set by law and are contingent upon the injured obtaining a settlement or an award. If we do not obtain a recovery in your workers' compensation case, you will not pay attorney fees.
