Dedicated Workers Compensation Accident & Injury Lawyers for NJ
One type of workers’ compensation claim is a specific accident which occurs on the job. The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law is a “no-fault” law, which means that regardless of whether the injury is your fault or the fault of your employer, as long as your work-related injury arises out of and in the course and scope of your employment, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Basically, if you were hurt while doing your job, you are entitled to workers ‘compensation benefits.
If you are injured on the job, the most important thing to do is immediately report the injury to your employer or supervisor. The law requires you to report the injury to your employer within 90 days. However, to make sure that your rightful benefits are provided to you as soon as possible, these accidents should be reported immediately.
Occupational Disease or Occupational Exposure in NJ
Even if you do not have a specific work-related accident, you may still be entitled to New Jersey Workers’ Compensation benefits if your repetitive job duties contribute to either causing a new injury, or worsening an already existing injury. This is something that most injured workers do not realize. Conditions such as: carpal tunnel syndrome, disc herniations and bulges in your spine, “bone-on-bone” conditions in your hips, knees and shoulders may in fact be covered by the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law if the repetitive stress of your job duties more likely than not were a factor in contributing to either causing or worsening the injury, even if you didn’t have an accident.
You may still file a claim even if you have preexisting physical limitations or you are of advanced age. Preexisting conditions or advanced age are not a defense to a workers’ compensation claim. Therefore, even if you do have a preexisting condition and that condition is made worse by your repetitive job duties, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits.

Stephen Matarazzo & Steven Lubcher Client Reviews
What Our Clients Say About Us
I am so pleased with this law firm. After sustaining a serious injury at work I was left with medical bills and lost pay from my employer. I continued to reach out to the company and workers' comp however was ignored. I was not only afraid for my health and how I would be treated for my injuries but for my future and the ability to pay hospital and doctor bills. Out of desperation, I reached out to attorney Steven Lubcher for help. Upon telling my story to Mr. Lubcher I was surprised to see the empathy for my case and I was assured that his law firm would immediately fight for my legal rights. During my initial consultation with Mr. Lubcher, he called the insurance company in charge of my case and I immediately started receiving the support from workers comp required by law. This firm also immediately petitioned the courts on my behalf to receive all of the workers' comp pay I had been denied. They won the case and I received all benefits including all back pay. When you are alone it is very scary to go up against large companies. Reaching out to this firm was the best decision I ever made. I am no longer worried about my future now that I have the support of this firm. Thank you again!Jeanine N.Client
After my accident, I had friends with similar injuries encourage me to file a workers compensation claim with a lawyer, but it didn't seem like something I wanted to do, even though I thought I deserved something for my injuries and may need more medical treatment in the future. When I finally spoke to Steven Lubcher and he explained the benefits to me and I'm happy to say I moved forward. Hiring Steven Lubcher to represent me was the best decision I made. He procured me a settlement that was twice as much as the friends who also had my same injury.John C.Client
