Serving All of Bergen County and Northern NJ

New Jersey’s workers compensation insurance provides benefits for people injured at work. The law allows workers to receive compensation without regard to fault in the accident or injury. New Jersey is a heavily industrialized state, leading to many thousands of injuries and worker’s compensation claims every year.

At the Westwood office of The Law Firm of Walter K. Schreyer, our legal team helps workers injured in the course of their employment. We help injured workers prepare claims, known as verified claim petitions. We represent them at hearings if their initial claim is denied. We appeal decisions at all levels to get workers payment for their medical bills, lost wages, and (in the case of permanent disability) a lump sum award. Contact us to learn how we can help you with a worker’s compensation claim.
