New JerseyWorkers Compensation Lawyers in New Jersey

All states have enacted workers' compensation laws. Workers' compensation is a type of insurance that provides a replacement for lost wages and medical benefits to an employment who is injured at work or during the course of his or her employment.


In exchange, the employee relinquishes the right to bring a lawsuit against the employer for a tort claim or negligence.


Workers' comp is also intended to provide payments to employees for permanent or temporary disabilities.


In most states, it is against the law for an employer to fire an employee for reporting an injury covered under workers' compensation.


Contact an experienced workers' compensation lawyer in New Jersey if you were injured at work or during the course of your employment.

Workers Compensation Specialty Areas

NJ Certification Criminal Trial Law

Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Workers' Compensation Law Attorney - In 1980, the Supreme Court of New Jersey established the Board on Attorney Certification. The purpose of the attorney certification program was to help the public find an attorney who had a recognized level of competence in particular fields of law such as Workers' Compensation Law.

To earn the special designation the attorney must devote a substantial portion of his or her practice to the area of workers' compensation, complete a minimum of 120 workers' compensation cases cumulatively during a three year period prior to applying for certification, handled at least ten contested workers' compensation actions "to a decision by the compensation court or in substantial part prior to a settlement." RG. 203:3.

In addition to the task requirements, to obtain the certification the attorney must be in good standing before the New Jersey State Bar, have five years experience, complete continuing legal education (CLE) courses related to workers' compensation, pass a rigorous examination and submit to peer review by other attorneys and judges.
