Broderick, Attorney at Law, our team of experienced legal professionals is committed to helping workers throughout New Jersey recover the financial compensation they deserve for their work-related injuries.

That is why we are here to answer all of your questions and to guide you through the entire legal process to ensure your rights and interests are fully protected.
If you have sustained an injury at work, you might be entitled to worker’s compensation benefits that can be used to cover the following damages:
- Lost Wages
- Loss of earning potential
- Hospital expenses
- Accident-related costs
Under state and federal law, your employer must maintain a safe working environment for all of the workers they employ. If your employer fails in this duty, they can be considered negligent under the law.
Call (201) 870-1909 today if you have experienced an injury while performing work-related duties. Our legal advocates are available 24/7 to take your call.
Injuries Covered in a Workers’ Compensation Claim
The workers’ compensation process is different than a personal injury case in New Jersey. These claims are filed through the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation and not the court system.
Companies in New Jersey must pay to cover each individual employee with workers’ compensation, with just a few exceptions. That means that for the most part, every employee, whether they are full time or part time, is eligible for workers’ comp benefits if they suffer injury at work.
Injuries that result from or in the course of employment can often be covered under workers’ compensation. We are here to help you determine whether your injuries may be covered under your company's workers' compensation insurance and help you pursue the compensation you deserve.

Do I need an attorney if I've already been offered a settlement?
The offer you received from the insurance company is almost certainly less than what you are entitled to, by a significant margin. Insurance companies, just like any other business, are structured to maximize their own profits, and in addition to offering a minimal amount in any settlement, they will also commonly employ aggressive tactics against claimants like you to discourage requests for full compensation. We can not only advise you of what your case is really worth, but also provide skilled representation to help you recover damages.
How much is my case worth?
Each personal injury case is unique, and your attorney will consult with you in detail to help you determine the full value of your claim. In any fair settlement, you should expect to receive enough money to cover all your medical bills, from emergency treatment at the scene of the accident to rehabilitative care to help you fully recover. Claims of this nature should also cover the amount of income you will lose due to the injury from missing work or inability to perform on your job, as well as compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced.
How long will it take to resolve my case?
A variety of factors will play into how long it takes to get your insurance settlement, from the availability of evidence to support your claim to how cooperative the insurance company is and how effectively you can prepare your case. At our firm, our legal team takes every case seriously and we will do everything possible to achieve a successful resolution for you. We will also keep you informed throughout the entire process about what you may be up against and how long you can expect your case to take.
