workers' compensation wage benefits, maximum medical
improvement, full and partial disability—recovering
benefits through a workers' comp claim can be confusing
and discouraging. Your employer is obligated to provide
necessary medical treatment and
income benefits for any employment-related injury—it
is our job, as lawyers, to see that you get the benefits

Is there a limit on workers' compensation
There are no limits on the
amount of your workers' compensation medical benefits.
Whether you need treatment for a repetitive stress
injury such as carpal tunnel syndrome, or you are

required to see the doctor your employer sends you to.
You can request a second opinion from a doctor of your
choosing, but that is subject to your employer's
The New Jersey workers' compensation medical benefit
system favors the employer. Since the employer pays the
doctor, the doctor is under pressure to send you back to
work prematurely, to terminate treatment prematurely, to
put you on light duty prematurely, and to discourage
aggressive medical treatment. To give an example, your
family doctor might recommend knee surgery while your
workers' compensation doctor may pressure you to return
to work without that treatment.
If your injury was partly the fault of someone other
than your employer, our attorneys will help you file a
third party claim for personal injury. If you become
eligible for Social Security Disability or private
disability insurance, our lawyers will see that all
claims are filed with the proper documentation.
If you have been injured, it is extremely important
that you have an experienced workers' compensation
lawyer review your case and see that you receive the
treatment you need for full recovery. If you were
injured under one employer and reinjure yourself on a
new job, it is likely you will need a lawyer to get the
benefits you deserve.
