Exercise Your Right To Workers’ Compensation
Work-related injuries in New Jersey can put a lot of pressure on the household budget. An injury, or occupational illness caused by exposure to toxins in the workplace, can require costly medical care. The inability to continue working due to illness or injury is stressful for many workers.
Unfortunately, many employers and their insurance companies try to keep their costs down – at the expense of injured workers. If you have been injured on the job, you need an experienced lawyer to help you protect your rights. At The Law Offices of Randy E. Lewis, LLC, we help injured workers exercise their rights and obtain the compensation they deserve.
We can help you build a compelling case across the spectrum of workplace issues, including:
- Industrial accidents
- Forklift accidents
- Crane accidents
- Construction accidents
- Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
Guiding You Through The Independent Medical Examination
Many employers require injured workers to undergo an independent medical examination (IME). Failing to comply with an IME will likely result in the denial of your workers’ compensation claim. We will stand by your side to protect your rights throughout the process.
We Resolve Workers’ Comp Disputes
Disputes can arise at many stages of the workers’ compensation process. Denied claims may be based on allegations that an injury is not work-related. Your employer’s doctor may try to release your for full duty before you are ready.
We can help you obtain the medical evidence to show the true limitations to support a return to work for light duty to allow you to fully recover from your injury. Similarly, permanency awards in workers’ compensation claims are based upon the doctor’s opinion and medical evidence.
As a full-service personal injury law firm, we will evaluate your circumstances to ensure that your rights are protected. Constructions sites frequently have workers from many different businesses, including contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and more. If someone other than your employer or a co-worker was negligent in causing your injuries, we can help you pursue a third-party claim.
