New Jersey workers' compensation attorneys
An accident in a manufacturing plant can leave workers seriously hurt. As a result, they could face costly medical treatment and experience a loss of income while being unable to work. At Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC in New Jersey, our workers' compensation attorneys fight to get these injured workers the benefits they need and deserve.
A work accident in a manufacturing plant can happen in many different ways. It may involve:
- Heavy lifting
- Projectiles (such as splinters or metal shavings)
- Falling from a height
- Slipping and falling
- Repetitive stress
Workers can suffer injuries to their head, neck, back, knees or legs. The type of injuries can range from muscle sprains or broken bones to traumatic brain injury (TBI) or spinal cord injuries. The medical treatment required may involve surgery, physical therapy and medication, and the cost of treatment can add up very quickly.
The workers' compensation system in New Jersey was set up to provide injured workers with necessary medical treatment and temporary wages while they are out of work. But employers and their insurance companies typically try to pay as little as possible. This often means an injured worker does not get all the medical treatment that's needed. And the worker may be forced to return to the job while still recovering from the injury.
That is not acceptable. Our attorneys are only interested in a resolution of your case that meets your needs - both medically and financially. And we are prepared to fight for you at every appeal and hearing and, if necessary, in court. We've been going to bat for injured workers since 1995, and we get results.
