When you are struggling financially because you are ill or injured, and you can no longer work, the thought of having your health back and a regular paycheck from a solid 40 hours of work may seem like the most coveted dream you could imagine. After all, if you don’t have your health, it is hard to appreciate anything else in life. That struggle gets harder when you are being buried in debt as a result of your lost wages and mounting medical bills.
When the injury or illness was a result of doing your job in the first place, the irony is even harder to bear. Thankfully, there is relief, and you are due compensation and assistance when you are injured or ill as the result of a job injury or illness.
Often, companies will not be forthcoming with their assistance in getting you the help to which you are entitled. In some cases, companies have laid off employees who were too ill or no longer fit to work. This is not only wrong; it is illegal.
If you are unable to work as a result of an injury or illness stemming from the work you once did, you would benefit from sitting down with a personal injury attorney familiar with the specifics of obtaining your compensation in the state of New Jersey. Your case is important and at Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., we will make the time to sit down with you and listen to the specifics of your situation at no cost to you, and we won’t accept money unless you get paid.
