Workers’ Compensation Lawyers in Ewing Represent Businesses and Employees
Skilled attorneys understand New Jersey workers’ comp law
Workers who suffer work-related injuries or illnesses may be eligible for workers’ compensation. Under most circumstances, workers in New Jersey are entitled to benefits even if they were negligent or at fault for the event that caused the injury. Unfortunately, workers often abuse this system. It is estimated that approximately 10 percent of all workers’ comp claims are fraudulent. The workers’ comp attorneys at Gaylord Popp LLC represent injured claimants and employers fighting these claims. Our experience on both sides of the issue makes us the right choice to advocate for you.

Using experts to bolster your case
Our attorneys work with a variety of experts when building your case or defense and again during trial. Medical experts help us evaluate the true nature of the worker’s injuries. Financial experts help us determine what a worker’s medical care should cost. When a worker’s injury is covered by workers’ compensation, we use this information to help us reach a fair settlement.
Recovering from other parties
Workers and employers may have rights against third parties such as contractors. If a worker’s injury was caused by another person, company or contractor, the worker may be able to bring a claim against that company.
If your company paid out a claim to an injured worker, you may be able to seek compensation from the responsible party for the benefits you had to pay your worker. This is known as subrogation. Our attorneys work to recover damages from any responsible party.
