Warehouse Accident Injury Lawyers
Warehouses are fast-paced work environments where everything happens quickly — including accidents. Recovering from accidents, however, can take time. You may even be left with a permanent impairment.
At Smith Magram Michaud Colonna, P.C., in Burlington, New Jersey, our lawyers represent workers who are injured on the job. If you have been injured in a warehouse accident, our goal is to help you recover all of the benefits you deserve from workers’ compensation. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
What Benefits Are Available From Workers’ Compensation?
As someone who was injured on the job, you are entitled to free medical care and temporary disability benefits until your doctor releases you to return to work. If you have suffered a lasting impairment, even if the loss is only a small percentage of your normal functions, you are entitled to additional compensation.
Unfortunately, navigating the workers’ compensation system isn’t always easy. Your employer and your employer’s doctor may not treat your injury as seriously as you do. In fact, once you have suffered an on-the-job injury, your interests and the interests of your employer are not the same. Your employer may start to view you as a liability. Here are examples of some of the things that can happen:
- Your employer may deny your work injury claim to avoid paying you benefits.
- The workers’ compensation doctor may claim that you are ready to return when you are still hurt.
- Your employer may look for an excuse to fire you.
Our lawyers are here to protect your rights and ensure that you receive the medical care you need and the compensation you deserve.
