Helping People Injured In The Workplace
New Jersey employees injured in the workplace often face various challenges and difficulties simply getting the support they need to get better and return to work. At Serafini & Serafini PC, we help injured workers address their concerns and secure what they need for a full recovery, either through a workers’ compensation claim or other type of claim.
If you were hurt in an accident at work, we can help you pursue appropriate compensation through the appropriate sources. Our lawyers are experienced in both the workers’ compensation claims process and the personal injury claims process, and we will employ our experience to help you reach your goals and secure the support you deserve.
What Types Of Compensation Can You Get?
The specific benefits you can get through your workers’ compensation claim depend largely upon your injuries and the details of your individual case. We will work to maximize your claim, fighting for benefits that may include the following:
- Recovery of a portion of your lost wages
- Medical treatment and coverage of rehabilitation benefits
- Vocational rehabilitation and other post-accident support
Workers’ compensation insurance providers do not have your best interests in mind, but we know how to fight for your best interests and pursue the best outcome on your behalf. Our attorneys are dedicated to the full protection of your rights after a workplace accident or development of an occupational illness.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim likely means you relinquish the right to sue your employer for the work accident, but there may be times in which it is appropriate to file a third-party personal injury claim. If your work injuries are the result of defective equipment or faulty parts, you could also have a valid injury claim. We will thoroughly investigate your case and determine all of the sources of compensation that could be available to you.
