New Jersey Nurse Injury Attorneys & Nurse Accident Lawyers Helping Injured Nurses in Brick, Edison, & Freehold
Nurses have one of the highest rates of job-related injuries of any profession. Nurses are especially prone to back and neuromuscular injuries from lifting patients. While some injuries may get better after a week or two, others can lead to chronic conditions and eventually the need for surgery.
If you have been injured on the job, it’s important to secure the representation of an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. Some people put off hiring a lawyer until they have a dispute with the workers’ comp insurance carrier. However, by that time you could be at risk of having your benefits terminated because you did not follow all of the steps needed to document your injury.
With more than 35 years of experience helping injured workers, the lawyers at Lombardi and Lombardi, P.A. can give you the advice you need at the beginning of your case. We offer a free consultation to evaluate your case and answer your questions. We serve clients in Middlesex County and throughout New Jersey.
Do I Need an Attorney’s Help to File a Workers’ Comp Claim?
While you can file a workers’ compensation claim without a lawyer’s help, the unrepresented employee is at a disadvantage. Workers’ compensation is a large, complex body of law. What you don’t know about the workers’ compensation system can hurt you.
The workers’ comp insurance carrier has a lot of discretion in deciding when it can terminate your benefits. After paying for minor treatment, the insurance carrier can decide that you are no longer injured even though you are still in significant pain.
Our lawyers can file a motion to compel the workers’ compensation carrier to provide medical benefits. If you are not satisfied with the treatment you are receiving, we can help you see doctors outside of the system who can give you an objective evaluation.
