We get results for injured workers in New Jersey
People throughout New Jersey go to work every day to earn money and support their families. But a work accident can turn their lives upside-down in an instant. Workers' compensation benefits are supposed to help workers during this difficult time. But getting the benefits you need can be challenging. A Cherry Hill workers' compensation attorney at Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC can help you navigate your way through the claims process.
A work accident can have a physical impact, leaving you with a serious injury. But it can also have a significant financial impact. The costs of treating your injury can add up quickly. And if you are unable to work because of your injury, you could experience a loss of income. Suddenly, it can become very hard for your family to pay bills.
While some jobs are more dangerous than others, an accident can happen in any industry, including:
- Health Care
- Food Service
- Union Members
The workers' compensation system is designed to provide injured workers with medical treatment and temporary wages following a work accident. Ideally, an injured worker would receive all necessary medical treatment and would not have to worry about staying afloat financially while recovering enough to return to work.
But reality is often quite different. Workers' compensation benefits are usually paid by the employer's insurance company. And insurance companies are often only concerned with their bottom line. To keep profits up, they always look for ways to keep the amount of benefits they pay down. As a result, many workers don't get the help they deserve and they're left to struggle on their own.
Experienced attorneys who know how to get results
Since 1995, Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC has been helping injured workers in New Jersey get the workers' compensation benefits they need and deserve. When we take on a case, we start with the end in mind. That means we prepare your case as if we will need to fight for you in court - where our trial attorneys have won many victories on behalf of clients.
Some of our attorneys - including founder Adam Kotlar - are board-certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court in the area of workers' compensation law. Board certification is not easy to get. Fewer than 3% of attorneys in the state are certified in any area of specialty. An attorney needs experience, references from judges and other attorneys, and continuing education, and also must pass a 7-hour exam.
We are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs. Our team litigation approach gives you the benefit of our combined experience - including our board-certified attorneys and former defense attorneys who know the tactics insurance companies use to avoid paying benefits. We also have established relationships with expert witnesses and medical providers who can give us an independent medical evaluation of your injury.
If your claim is denied, we will represent you at all appeals and hearings. If the insurance company delays providing you with needed treatment or medication, we will take swift action. You can expect a high level of professionalism and commitment from our law firm. Someone is always available during office hours to answer your questions. And our attorneys always return phone calls within 24 hours - usually much sooner than that.
