When you work to provide a living for yourself and your family, you shouldn’t have to bear the burdens that come with suffering a work injury. Not only does a workplace injury cause you to need weeks or months of medical treatment and recovery, but it can also jeopardize your ability to work and earn an income. Fortunately, New Jersey’s workers’ compensation system is intended to provide help to workers who suffer an injury on the job, and our Union County work injury lawyers are here to help you collect those benefits.
Although the law entitles injured workers to certain defined benefits, it does not entitle injured workers to an easy process in getting the benefits they deserve. Unfortunately, some employers and workers’ compensation insurers fight hard to avoid paying out the compensation and benefits that a victim of a work injury deserves.

After suffering a work injury, New Jersey’s workers’ compensation law generally entitles you to certain benefits from your employer (or its workers’ compensation insurer). These benefits may include:
Your work injury may have been caused by the negligence or legal fault of someone not connected with your employer. For example, you may be involved in a motor vehicle accident with a negligent third-party motorist. Or you may be injured in a work accident triggered by defective tools or equipment. When this occurs, you may be entitled to pursue a third-party injury claim, in addition to seeking workers’ compensation benefits from your employer.
Third-party injury claims can provide financial recovery beyond that offered by workers’ compensation, including full compensation for your lost wages from missed work, loss of earning potential when permanent disabilities impact your ability to work, pain and suffering, and lost enjoyment or quality of life.
If you’ve experienced a work injury, you deserve to receive compensation or benefits. Although employers are legally required to provide workers’ compensation benefits for a work injury, many employers or their insurers drag their feet on paying injured workers the benefits they deserve. If your workers’ comp claim has been denied or if you haven’t received certain benefits you believe you are entitled to, the work injury attorneys of Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas, Arnold & Mangan will fight to get you the benefits you deserve.
Our Union County work injury lawyers will take the time to ensure you understand your rights and options under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation system. Our firm will also thoroughly investigate the facts and circumstances of your work injury, including identifying whether a third-party may have been responsible for your injury, entitling you to pursue a third-party injury lawsuit that can provide you with additional compensation beyond that provided through workers’ comp.
Liable parties and insurance companies will do everything they can to avoid paying you fair and full compensation. That’s why you need dedicated, experienced legal representation on your side to protect your rights and interests.

Union County is located in the northern part of New Jersey, part of the New York City metropolitan area. Union County was originally part of the Elizabethtown Tract purchased in 1664 by English colonists from Native Americans. Union County was officially established in 1857, the last of the counties to be formed in New Jersey. Today, Union County is home to numerous historic places and buildings from nearly four centuries of history. Union County also hosts a major healthcare industry, with pharmaceutical company Merck & Co. having its headquarters in the county.
Under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation system, you are required to notify your employer of your work injury within 30 days of the injury to receive full benefits. You should provide notice no later than 90 days following your work injury, although the amount of benefits you receive could be affected. If you have to file a formal workers’ comp claim against your employer, you have two years to file. You also have two years from the date of your work injury to file a third-party injury lawsuit.
Although your employer should automatically pay workers’ compensation benefits for a work injury, in many cases employers deny that an employee’s injury is work-related, or employers decline to cover certain medical treatment or pay the full benefits the employee may be entitled to. When this occurs, a work injury attorney can fight to ensure you receive the full benefits you deserve under the law. A work injury lawyer can also review your case and potentially help you pursue a legal claim against a third party that may have been responsible for your work injury.
