We go to work to get you the benefits you need
Some workplace accidents lead to broken bones. These injuries are painful and result in a loss of mobility, leaving many workers temporarily unable to do their jobs. Workers' compensation benefits are supposed to help them, but insurance companies try to pay as little as possible. That's when you need a workers' compensation attorney from Kotlar, Hernandez & Cohen, LLC in New Jersey.
Workers in jobs that involve physical labor are at a higher risk for broken bones, but these work injuries can happen at any workplace. Broken bones can happen if you are in a work-related motor vehicle crash, fall from a height, get hit by a falling object or slip and fall.
Broken bones can occur in the arm, wrist, hands, neck, ankles, legs or hips. There are also different types of breaks, which can affect how long the healing process takes. Treatment usually involves setting the bone then keeping it immobile for weeks. In some cases, surgery may also be necessary.
In New Jersey, the workers' compensation system is supposed to help injured workers by paying for needed medical treatment and providing temporary wages. But it doesn't always work out quite that way. Employers can dispute claims. Insurance companies can deny treatment.
Fighting for your benefits
That's why it's important to have an experienced workers' compensation attorney on your side. One with a thorough knowledge of the workers' compensation laws and how the system works. Our firm has been helping injured workers get the benefits they need and deserve since 1995.
If an employer disputes your claim, we gather evidence that shows you deserve benefits. If an insurance company delays approval for testing, treatment or medication, we take swift action. If treatment or medication is denied, we arrange for an independent medical evaluation and initiate an appeal to get approval.
Some of our attorneys, including our founder Adam Kotlar, are board-certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court in workers' compensation law. It's not something many firms can say. In fact, fewer than 3% of attorneys in New Jersey are board-certified in any area of specialty. We think it's important to provide the best representation we possible can for our clients.
You can expect a high level of professionalism from our firm. We will keep you informed of the progress of your claim. And if you ever have a question, simply call us. There is always someone available during office hours to discuss your claim. And our attorneys return all phone calls within 24 hours - usually within the hour.
