Your Legal Guide Through the Claims Process
James M. Curran Attorney At Law is experienced in navigating the pitfalls of dealing with workers’ compensation insurance companies that may unfairly interrupt benefits and medical treatment with no warning to the claimant. His office will ensure that you obtain the treatment you need and the benefits to which you are entitled under the law. He will advocate for you every time an issue arises, and will work with you to get the job done quickly, effectively and with the best result for you.
There are three main categories of compensation available to injured workers in New Jersey:
- Medical expenses
- Lost wages
- Disability (both temporary and permanent)
Dealing With Insurance Companies
Problems can arise when insurance companies try to terminate benefits before an injured employee reaches maximum medical improvement (MMI), or the medical provider does not provide adequate treatment. My firm advocates on behalf of the clients to ensure that they receive not only the treatment they need for their injuries, but also the full compensation that they are entitled to under the law.
Periodic meetings before a workers’ compensation judge are a required part of ongoing disabilities. By retaining an experienced lawyer to handle your case, you can rest assured that you will be adequately prepared when you must answer questions about your condition.
In some cases, third-party negligence is a contributing factor to a worker’s injuries. Because I also have a personal injury practice, we can also pursue third-party claims against those whose negligence resulted in medical costs, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
