If you have a workers’ compensation case or a potential workers’ compensation case and you are wondering if you should speak to someone who knows New Jersey workers’ compensation law, the answer is yes. Here’s why:
It Won’t Cost a Thing
Most New Jersey workers’ compensation attorneys provided a free, no-obligation consultation. So, consulting with an attorney about your concerns will cost you nothing but time.
As a matter of fact, even when you hire a workers compensation attorney to handle your case, you may not be required to pay them anything unless your case is successful.
Many workers compensation attorneys work on a contingency fee contract. This means that you only pay if they recover money for you.
So, as long as you consult with a workers’ compensation attorney who provides free consultations and/or hire one who works on a contingency fee contract, money shouldn’t be an issue.
Your Questions Deserve Answers
With workers’ compensation cases, there are no trivial questions. If you have a question about your case and can’t find the answer, the best thing to do is to talk to someone who specializes in New Jersey workers’ compensation law.
An attorney who specializes in New Jersey workers’ compensation will be able to tell you what to expect in your case and whether or not you are receiving all of the benefits to which you are entitled.
When you are not being advised by an experienced workers’ compensation attorney, a lot can go wrong to jeopardize your worker’ compensation claim and your ability to maximize your benefits.
For example, you may let the statute of limitations expire and lose benefits that you would have otherwise been entitled to receive. Also, you may do or say something that changes how your employer, the insurance provider, or the judge sees your case, and because of this, you may be denied benefits that you rightfully deserve.
The Conversation Will Be Confidential
The conversation between you and the workers’ compensation attorney will be confidential and it will not be passed on to anyone else.
Conversations between attorneys and their clients are protected under what is referred to as the attorney-client privilege, so you don’t have to worry about that information getting back to your employer.
To summarize, anytime you have been hurt at work, it’s worth talking to a workers’ compensation attorney––as long as you can do that for free. Workers’ compensation attorneys offer free consultations that are confidential and can help you avoid costly mistakes in your workers’ compensation claim.
