Company Closings And Workers' Compensation Claims

If you have received notification that your factory or place of employment is scheduled for permanent closing, our team of attorneys at Lerner, Piermont & Riverol, P.A., can help you determine your options for filing a workers' compensation claim within the statute of limitations following an injury.

Many workers throughout New Jersey suffer injuries for years without filing a legitimate insurance claim because they are concerned about employer retaliation or their future opportunities at their company. Even if they do file a claim, they do so on their own, or pro se, and subsequently have their claim denied.

Whether your claim has been denied or if you have yet to file, we can help you craft a strategy to secure the compensation you deserve.

Time Is Of The Essence In Workers' Compensation Claims

The statutory time period for filing an injury claim typically expires two years following an injury or a plant closing. Regardless of when your injury occurred, it's important to speak with an attorney. Our lawyers have more than 100 years of combined workers' compensation and personal injury law experience helping injured workers file successful claims and obtaining the compensation they are entitled to.
