Workers' Compensation

Laddey, Clark & Ryan now offers representation for employees injured at work.

Workers’ Compensation provides benefits to workers who are injured or who contract an occupational disease while working.

The law protects both the employee and the employer. Employees are entitled to receive reasonable and necessary medical care, temporary disability benefits during the period of rehabilitation, and when documented, benefits for permanent disability. Employers provide for the cost of such coverage while being protected from more expensive tort litigation and unlimited civil verdicts for non-economic losses.

Under the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act, the employer directs the medical care of the injured worker. Frequently issues arise concerning the selection of medical providers and the timing of medical treatment. Laddey Clark & Ryan attorneys are prepared to deal with any issues that may arise concerning medical treatment and the payment of temporary disability (wage replacement) issues.

Our attorneys are also prepared to represent you in connection with your entitlement to any claim you may have for permanent disability benefits due to permanent functional impairment resulting from your injury. We can guide you through the process of filing your claim, dealing with insurance-related issues and ensuring that your rights are protected.
