Newark workers’ compensation lawyers
New Jersey law is clear: if you’re hurt on the job, you get workers’ compensation benefits. It doesn’t matter if it was your fault. You are eligible for three primary benefits in a NJ Worker’s Compensation claim. The first is that you are entitled to the full cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment – that means no co-pays, deductibles, or out-of-pocket expenses for your treatment. The second is temporary disability benefits through the worker’s compensation insurance to replace your lost wages while you are unable to work. Most people are eligible to receive 70% of their weekly wages after missing 7 days from work.
Despite these benefits being required by law, the workers’ comp insurance company may not see it that way. They want to try to deny or minimize work injury claims because it saves them money. The worker’s compensation insurance company may dispute the extent of your injuries or question whether certain procedures or medications are reasonable and necessary. They may argue you weren’t on the job when the injury happened. Because the insurance companies play games with people’s worker’s compensation claims, you need personalized and experienced legal representation like you will get from the lawyers at Shebell & Shebell in your corner.

We know how the system works, and we know how to present convincing arguments to workers’ compensation judges. Whether your case is resolved through a negotiated settlement or a formal hearing, we will be in your corner, advocating for your rights, every step of the way.
Newark personal injury attorneys
When you’re injured in a car accident, truck accident, slip and fall, dog bite, construction accident, or by medical negligence, your life can change overnight. As your medical expenses pile up and you’re struggling to pay your bills, the insurance company may offer you a “lowball” settlement that doesn’t come close to meeting the full cost of your injuries. The insurance company may try other ways to deny or minimize your claim by sending burdensome amounts of complicated documentation, or may even try blame you for the accident.
We don’t let insurance companies take advantage of people’s pain and losses, or their lack of familiarity with the legal system. Our experienced Newark personal injury attorneys know the legal system in New Jersey, and we know how to prove a case for full and fair compensation that the insurance company can’t ignore. We will provide caring and personalized representation to guide you through the process from day one. Our team of experienced attorneys includes three lawyers who have been certified by the New Jersey Supreme Court as Civil Trial Attorneys based on their years of experience presenting matters to juries throughout the State.
Our team will conduct a thorough investigation to prepare for every angle the insurance company may try to take to deny or minimize your claim. We interview witnesses, review accident reports, gather physical and medical evidence, and perhaps most importantly, listen to your story, to get to the bottom of what happened and to maximize your recovery.
In the vast majority of cases, we are able to reach a valuable settlement with the insurance company commensurate with the injuries and financial losses you have suffered. If they won’t pay an appropriate settlement, we are always prepared to take them to court to let a jury decide. Either way, you have Shebell & Shebell on your side, protecting your rights and directing your legal strategy, allowing you focus on getting better.
