Fighting Back Against A Disputed Claim
It may seem clear cut. You’ve been seriously injured on the job, and now you’re applying for workers’ compensation to get some help with the medical costs and recovery. But there’s an issue: Your employer is disputing your account of how the injury occurred or of its seriousness. Typically, this situation occurs because the employer wants to reduce their financial exposure and keep their premiums from rising. In some cases, the insurance company can dispute the claim as well.
At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, L.L.C., our lawyers have decades of experience fighting back against disputed claims. We have helped clients in Ocean County, Monmouth County and across New Jersey obtain compensation including temporary and permanent disability benefits.
Moving Forward After A Dispute
After a dispute, we can help injured workers file the paperwork for an informal hearing before a judge. At this hearing, we may file a Motion for Medical and Temporary Benefits, if applicable, allowing for immediate treatment. In some cases, a formal claim may be the better option.
As with any situation involving workers’ compensation, the circumstances vary from case to case. We can assist you in making sure that you are properly heard as you recover from a serious injury.
