Medical Disability Benefits In New Jersey
If you are unhappy with the quality or the amount of medical care you are receiving, following an on-the-job accident, you have the right to an appeal. Although your employer is ultimately responsible for your care, the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Division of Workers’ Compensation administers the system.
Fighting For The Rights Of Injured Workers
Our attorneys at Silvi, Fedele & Honschke will work with you to ensure you have the correct doctors’ reports available for your appeal. The process of seeking additional medical care is a motion for medical treatment. In the appropriate situation, our Ocean County lawyers will obtain a doctor’s expert opinion and prepare the motion with supporting documents so that a hearing can be held before a judge of compensation seeking the requested relief. We will fight for the correct medical care for your injuries.
Your employers have the right to respond to your appeal. If they oppose the request, you may be sent to a doctor of their choice to be examined.
Call our medical disability benefits attorneys at 888-898-1206 for assistance in filing an appeal to get the proper medical treatment. We handle cases for people in Ocean County, Monmouth County and throughout New Jersey.

After you have filed the appeal and your employers have or have not requested a further examination, the case will come before a judge. Evidence will be presented and, if necessary, doctors on each side will testify as to the severity of your condition. We will stand by you through all of this and represent you in the courtroom, working hard to achieve a satisfactory outcome for your case.
Most people don’t even realize they have the right to appeal the decisions about their care as made by the workers’ compensation insurance company their employer pays to cover employees in cases of at-work injury. You do have that right and should feel free to exercise it if you’re not getting the care you need to recover fully from a workplace accident or injury.
