Mark | Lavigne, LLC, understands the urgency of your situation. The firm’s team provides knowledgeable, focused legal service, and work one-on-one with its clients. They can give you and your case the personal attention needed for a positive outcome.

If you suffered a job injury, you are entitled to Workers Compensation benefits. Workers’ compensation will pay you for medical expenses and time off work – even gas and mileage for driving to the doctor’s office.

And if your injury disables you, you will have to work a lower paying job in the future. Workers’ compensation can reimburse you for your lost earning potential.

New Jersey’s Workman’s Compensation Policy

In New Jersey, every worker is entitled to benefits for on-the-job injuries. Employers are required to have Workers’ compensation insurance to pay those benefits. If they do not, they may be subject to heavy penalties.

If your employer doesn’t have Workers’ Comp insurance, New Jersey has a fund set up to pay benefits to workers in your situation.

How Will My Case Be Resolved?

A skilled employment law lawyer at Mark | Lavigne, LLC, will gather medical evidence and, if available, eye-witness testimony to prove two things

  • That your injury was caused on the job
  • Whether you need compensation for any permanent disability

Your case will be decided by a workers’ compensation judge during a hearing. The settlement will depend on the severity of your injuries.
