Workers compensation attorneys who fight for you
The hospitality industry is a broad field that includes many types of jobs providing service to the public, such as those in hotels, resorts and restaurants. When there is a work accident at a hospitality industry job, workers can sustain serious injuries. They can be left with rising medical bills and temporarily - or permanently - unable to do their jobs.
Injured workers are eligible for workers' compensation benefits in New Jersey. These benefits include needed medical treatment for their injuries as well as temporary wage benefits while they are unable to work. The workplace accident attorneys at Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC will fight to make sure they get the benefits they deserve.
Jobs in the hospitality industry include:
- Maintenance workers
- Front desk attendants
- Room attendants
- Wait staff
- Kitchen workers
- Shuttle drivers
- Parking attendants
The hospitality industry is a broad category that describes many types of jobs, and there are all kinds of work accidents that can happen. These accidents can involve lifting, motor vehicle crashes, slips and falls, food preparation, food serving, repetitive motion and many other activities. In an instant, a worker can be left with a significant injury.
Unfortunately, the workers' compensation process can be difficult to navigate. Employers get to choose the doctor that treats your injury and may dispute your claim for benefits. Insurance companies can delay or deny approval of certain tests, treatment and medications. In fact, they will try to pay you as little as possible.
Experience that gets results
That's why you need an experienced workers' compensation attorney fighting for you. Insurance companies have lawyers on their side. You need an aggressive legal advocate who will act in your best interests and work to maximize your benefits.
We've been helping injured workers throughout New Jersey since 1995. 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 difficult to earn - that's why fewer than 3% of attorneys in the state have it.
Our attorneys are extremely knowledgeable in workers' compensation law but are always looking to build on that knowledge. That's because we believe you deserve high-quality representation for your claim.
We're not interested in making a quick settlement with the insurance company and moving on. Our goal is to get you the best possible resolution of your claim, one that truly meets your needs. We will fight for you at all appeals and hearings with the Division of Workers' Compensation to get it. And if we are still not satisfied and believe you are not being treated fairly, we will fight for you in the state courts.
