Workers' Compensation

In recent years, workers' compensation laws and policies have changed in ways that benefit employers and insurers while leaving injured workers at a disadvantage. What should be a straightforward application process can end up taking months or years, and benefits are too often denied for bureaucratic reasons.

At the Law Offices of Nancy E. Lucianna, P.C., our attorneys are well-versed in New Jersey workers' compensation laws and procedures. If you have been injured in a workplace accident, our recommendation is simple: Report the injury to your employer right away, and then give us a call.

Why Hire A Workers' Compensation Attorney?

Technically, the workers' compensation system can be navigated without the help of a lawyer. But working with an attorney — from the very beginning — can make the process smoother, faster and far less frustrating.

Too many workers come to us only after their claim has been denied. At that point, legal options are limited. But if you seek our help soon after the injury has occurred, we may be able to prevent the mistakes and missteps that lead to claim denial. We will also work to ensure that your employer does not engage in any actions meant to weaken your case.

We have helped countless New Jersey residents seek the compensation that they should be entitled to. Common accidents and injuries include:

  • Neck and back injuries leading to chronic pain
  • Knee injuries
  • Shoulder injuries
  • Repetitive strain injuries such as carpal tunnel
  • Overexertion injuries
  • Slips, trips and falls
  • Construction accidents
  • Falling from scaffolding and other elevated surfaces
  • Vehicle accidents, including specialized equipment such as forklifts
  • Machine entanglement
  • Scalding and burns

Was Someone Else At Fault For Your Injuries?

Although workers' compensation generally prohibits you from suing your employer after most work injuries, you may be able to hold a third party liable if that party contributed to your injuries. Examples would include the manufacturer of unsafe machinery or malfunctioning safety equipment.

In addition to helping you through all stages of the workers' compensation process, our firm can also bring a third-party liability claim if it is warranted in your case.
