Worker's Compensation
Have you been injured from a work-related accident or work-related occupational disease in the State of New Jersey? John Brown represents employees injured on the job  in work related accidents or work-related occupational diseases.

New Jersey Workers' Compensation law defines an injury as work-related if it arises out of or in the course of employment. The employee is required to give adequate and timely notice of the injury to the employer. Upon proper notice, the employee may be entitled to statutory benefits including temporary wage and medical benefits pending the outcome of the case. After proper treatment is provided, a determination will be made whether the employee has suffered any permanent disability. A percentage of disability is usually assigned to the case which translates into a dollar value based upon charts published yearly by the New Jersey Division of Workers' Compensation. 


In New Jersey, workers' compensation claims are brought by the filing of a formal Verified Claim Petition which contains specific information about the employee (known as the Petitioner), the employer (known as the Respondent), the work-related accident, occupational disease, and the injury sustained and wage information. The Petition will be assigned to a court covering the area of the employee's residence. If the employee is not a resident of the State of New Jersey, the Petition is assigned a Court covering the area of the employer's place of business.

Under the New Jersey Workers' Compensation Act, an injured employee in most instances cannot seek additional recovery from an employer beyond what is provided for under the workers' compensation laws. An injured employee, however, is not barred from bringing a civil action for recovery against others (other than the employer) who may be responsible for the injury. These claims are referred to as "third party claims" and may be an important part of your case.

New Jersey law prohibits employers from retaliating against employees for asserting rights to compensation for work-related injuries.

John Brown provides experienced, knowledgeable and aggressive legal counsel in pursuit of a just and equitable award of compensation. There is no attorney fee unless an award of compensation is recovered for you.
