Results-Oriented New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Protecting the Rights of Injured Workers for Four Decades
When you’ve been injured on the job, your first course of action is typically to file a New Jersey’s workers’ compensation claim. Like every other state, New Jersey has laws that allow workers to seek benefits to cover lost wages, as well as qualified medical expenses.
Often, though, when you seek your rightful benefits under the law, you run into a roadblock. That’s because your employer and the work comp insurance company have a vested interest in minimizing the amount they pay to settle your claim. Often, they’ll simply deny your claim outright, forcing you to fight to get the benefits you deserve. That’s when you need the experienced and results-oriented representation from attorney Howard D. Popper, a dedicated, hardworking and fearless advocate for personal injury victims throughout New Jersey.
At our offices, we understand that a workplace injury can change your life in a heartbeat. We also understand that every accident injury claim is unique, that you have your own personal needs. We’ll take the time to get to know you, to learn the impact of your injuries on your daily life, and to determine exactly what you need to be made whole again.
When you hire us, you’ll always work with attorney Popper, never with an inexperienced associate or a paralegal. We’ll handle all matters related to your full and fair recovery, including all communications with your employer and with any insurance provider.
