At the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A., we have managed the litigation of thousands of matters relating to injured workers. Some of the most common varieties of claims we take on include:
— Repetitive stress injuries: A repetitive stress injury relates to injuries caused by actions that are repeated over and over again by the employee. For example, a baker who is forced to knead dough all day long could develop a repetitive stress injury in his or her shoulder and elbow joints. In such a case, the injured baker would be able to seek workers' compensation benefits to pay for his or her medical care and time spent unable to work.
— Catastrophic injuries: A catastrophic injury could involve a serious injury that leads to permanent disability, or an injury that requires long-term medical care and long periods of time unable to work. In these cases, medical bills will be exorbitantly expensive and the worker will not be able to earn an income while recovering. Fortunately, if successfully navigated, a workers' compensation claim can remunerate the injured employee for these costs.
— Worker's compensation appeals: Sometimes, an injured worker will try to pursue his or her claim without the assistance of a lawyer and sometimes in these situations — and at times, even when the worker has a lawyer on his or her side — the claims will be denied. Our law firm has successfully assisted many workers with denied claims to appeal denials and get the benefits they deserve.
At the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A., we assist injured New Jersey workers to compile and file their workers' compensation claims. In doing so, we make sure that an injured worker's claim is filed in the most appropriate fashion considering the nature of his or her injuries. In all the cases we take on, our express mission is to secure the highest level of compensation and benefits we can for our clients.
