Were Your Workers’ Comp Benefits Denied Or Terminated?

Nothing is more frustrating than getting a denial or unexpected termination of your workers’ comp benefits. The impact of a denied claim can be especially staggering when you’re already suffering.

You shouldn’t have to shoulder the financial worries of a serious work injury or illness. Thankfully, you may still have an opportunity to turn your claim around, provided you take action before the appeal deadline.

Two Avenues For Appeal

In New Jersey, there are two ways to pursue a workers’ compensation appeal:

  • An informal hearing before the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation
  • A formal appeal with an administrative judge

If the formal appeal fails, you might also have grounds to pursue further appeal in court.
