No matter your occupation, an accident at your workplace can have damaging results. Unfortunately, it is not uncommon for workers to feel intimidated by the process or frustrated if the benefits claim is denied. An experienced workers’ compensation lawyer can explain your legal rights and guide you through the process.

We are prepared to help clients injured in various industries from construction to factory work and everything in between. It is crucial that you work with a knowledgeable lawyer who can explain your rights. Understanding your options and the legal protections available to you is a critical step in recovering the benefits you are owed.
Workers’ compensation isn’t meant to be a struggle with your employer or its insurance carrier. It’s intended instead to function as a fair way to protect injured workers and their families from the loss of income and disability that can follow a serious on-the-job injury.
Injuries can result from numerous factors from a single accident to exposure to toxic chemicals to the repetitive stress of the same motion over and over again.
Because workers’ compensation is supposed to function as a no-fault income protection system, once you’ve established an inability to work as a result of a work-related injury, you should not have to encounter any problems in qualifying for benefits. Many applicants do, however, and the advice of a knowledgeable lawyer might be necessary to protect your rights.
If you have been hurt at work, contact the Law Offices of Anthony L. Coviello, LLC, for a free consultation about your rights under the New Jersey workman’s comp system.
