Maximize Your Workers’ Compensation Benefits
Applying for workers’ compensation is a clear next step while recovering from a serious workplace accident. Work injuries are not always sudden and severe. Workers’ compensation can cover cumulative injuries such as carpal tunnel, back injuries or psychiatric claims. At Dwight P. Ransom Attorney At Law, we offer legal representation for all types of injured workers throughout Monmouth County and Ocean County.
Our experienced legal staff can help you recover damages related to your injury. Workers’ compensation can cover:
- Medical costs
- Wage losses
- Permanent disability compensation
The clock for obtaining your benefits begins when you are injured or when you discover a cumulative injury is work related. The sooner you get an attorney involved, the better your chances of obtaining maximum benefits. Call our offices in Neptune to ensure you receive the benefits you deserve.
Why Do You Need A Lawyer To Get Workers’ Compensation?
Unlike personal injury lawsuits, you can receive workers’ compensation regardless of who was at fault for the accident. While it is possible to complete a workers’ compensation application on your own, it is important to secure legal assistance to ensure that you are not denied benefits due to a mistake. Errors in the application process can reduce your benefits, or they can be denied altogether. It is also possible to make simple mistakes, such as:
- Visiting the wrong doctor
- Misrepresenting your injuries
- Missing documentation deadlines
These errors can lead to you being under compensated for real injuries. We offer legal guidance for the entire application process, from start to finish. We will assist you in notifying your employer, identifying the best doctors to visit and which application strategies will ensure maximum compensation. We also assist clients facing long-term disability with their Social Security disability applications and appeals.
