Collecting Workers’ Compensation in Pennsylvania or New Jersey: Get the Right Legal Advice from the Start
The workers’ compensation system was created to get people injured at work the income and medical treatment they need. But things do not always go that smoothly.
In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the workers’ compensation system is controlled by insurance companies and the company doctor. None of those people are there to look out for your interests. You also need to take the right steps with your workers’ compensation claim right from the start, in case your injuries turn out to be worse than they seemed at first.
You do not have to go through this alone. If you were injured in a workplace accident, you need an experienced benefits lawyer advising you now, to help you avoid the delays and unfair treatment that can happen at any stage of claiming workers’ compensation.

Building a Strong Claim
We can advise you on exactly when and how to file a strong workers’ compensation claim—one that will have a strong chance of getting approved. Our attorneys can also help you overcome complications such as:
- Denial of benefits after first application
- Suspension of benefits before you are ready to return to work
- Wrong or incomplete diagnosis of your injuries, such as a herniated disc treated as a back strain
- Inadequate disability ratings for serious or long-term injuries
- Accidents involving scarring or disfigurement, which can entitle you to extra benefits
In the case of a construction accident and work-related car or truck accident, there is often the chance to also make a personal injury claim, while still collecting workers’ compensation benefits.
