Skilled attorneys protecting New Jersey workers
When you are injured or become ill at your workplace or a work-related activity, you may be eligible for workers compensation. You are entitled to workers compensation benefits even in the absence of your employer’s fault or negligence.
The experienced attorneys at Colligan & Colligan in New Jersey have helped workers get fair compensation for injuries and illnesses sustained in the workplace for more than 44 years. Our attorneys help workers obtain coverage for their workers compensation claims, including:
- Compensation for permanent disability
- Dependents’ recovery for worker’s death
- Lost wages or salary
- Rehabilitation expenses
Job security and retaliation
Your employer is prohibited from firing you or retaliating against you for making a workers compensation claim. We will be sure your employer knows that we will take action against them for any retaliation and that they must be sure your job is kept safe.
Third party lawsuits
The workers compensation system governs your rights against your employer. In addition, we will investigate and pursue appropriate claims against other third parties whose negligence caused your injury. A third party personal injury claim can include compensation for general damages and pain and suffering, whereas your workers compensation claim cannot. At Colligan & Colligan, our attorneys are skilled at analyzing whether you should supplement your workers compensation claim and seek recovery in civil court, and if you should also pursue a negligent third party.
