How To Proceed With My Claim

When an employee is hurt on the job, the process that ensues can be confusing and frustrating.

The process of filing a claim and obtaining benefits under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation laws can be burdensome and take a long time to resolve.

Mark | Lavigne, LLC will help you understand the process for recovering under the workers’ compensation statute and will handle the details of your case from inception through settlement.

The workers’ compensation process typically takes an employee through several stages

  • Notice
  • Medical Treatment
  • Evaluations and Analysis by Doctors
  • Waiting Period
  • Declaration of MMI
  • Filing of the Claim Petition
  • Meeting with Petitioner’s and Respondent’s Medical Experts
  • Motions to Enforce Rights
  • Hearings
  • Trial

While most claims do not go to trial, an experienced attorney from Mark | Lavigne, LLC can advise you as to the possible settlement of your claim. Most workers’ compensation matters end in a mutual settlement that involves some form of monetary payment to the employee in compensation for the injury.
