Here For You After A Workplace Injury
You got injured at work. Now, you aren’t sure where to turn. You have bills to pay and need to focus on your recovery. A workers’ compensation claim can allow you to do just that.
I am Steven F Wukovits, and I know that people are often injured at work and do not know where to turn for fear of being fired. Injured employees often turn to me to obtain their benefits including “temporary” pay, medical treatment/rehabilitation, and ultimately a cash award for partial or full disability.
Answering Your Questions
Will I lose my job if I file a claim?
An employer cannot terminate your employment if you file a workers’ compensation claim against them. This is illegal in the state of New Jersey. If you were fired after filing a claim, contact my office today.
Who determines what benefits I will receive?
This depends on the type of insurance your employer has. If the company is insured, the insurance carrier will determine your benefits. If the company is self-insured, your employer will investigate your claim and then determine your benefits.
I have two jobs, can I receive workers’ comp for both?
No. Workers’ compensation is paid out through insurance. You will file a claim and receive benefits from the workplace in which you sustained your injury.
Does my employer have to have workers’ compensation insurance?
Yes. The State of New Jersey requires all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance.
What types of benefits are there?
Workers’ compensation benefits may be used for all necessary medical treatment. The compensation can also be used for lost wages through temporary or permanent disability as a result of your injury.
