Workers’ compensation isn’t meant to be a struggle with your employer or its insurance carrier. It’s intended instead to function as a fair way to protect injured workers and their families from the loss of income and disability that can follow a serious on-the-job injury. If you have been hurt at work, contact the law firm of Icaza & Burgess, Attorneys at Law for a free consultation about your rights under the New Jersey workman’s comp system.
Because workers’ compensation is supposed to function as a no-fault income protection system, once you’ve established an inability to work as a result of a work-related injury, you should not have to encounter any problems in qualifying for benefits. Many applicants do, however, and the advice of a knowledgeable lawyer might be necessary to protect your rights.
