Appealing Denied Workers’ Compensation Benefits
At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke, our Brick workers’ comp attorneys assist with every stage of the claims process, including filing the initial claims petition, gathering evidence, interviewing witnesses and representation during the formal hearing.
Hearings are akin to trials. At the hearing, a judge will oversee the case, medical evidence will be introduced and witnesses will testify. It is important to have an attorney working with you who understands the legal procedures, knows how to present and cross-examine witnesses, and can build a strong case for benefits.
Our lawyers work closely with doctors and vocational experts when building our appeals. We also interview accident witnesses, co-workers, and family and friends to determine the impact an injury has had on our clients’ lives and ability to work.
Appealing Denied Medical Treatment
In New Jersey, employers control medical benefits. Injured workers can only see doctors approved by their employer and their employer’s insurance company. Oftentimes, workers feel they are not getting the medical care they need to heal from their injuries.
If you have had medical treatments denied we can help. Our lawyers file motions for medical treatment and work with outside medical experts to build strong claims that get our clients the medical treatment they need to heal.
