Our Workers’ Compensation Attorneys Handle Workplace Injuries
Freehold Lawyers Who Get Results When Workers Are Hurt
Nobody goes to work expecting to be injured, but every year, workers throughout Monmouth and Ocean counties suffer an accident that leaves them with a workplace injury. Their lives can change instantly, and many aren’t sure what to do next. That’s when it’s time to call the workers’ compensation attorneys at Shebell & Shebell, LLC. Our offices are located in Shrewsbury and Freehold.
Medical expenses can add up quickly following a workplace injury, and recovery can take weeks, months or longer. This comes at a time when the injured worker suffers a loss of income due to being unable to work. The regular bills don’t stop coming in, so it can be a tough time for injured workers and for their families.
When workers are hurt on the job in New Jersey, the workers’ compensation system is supposed to help. Injured workers should have the cost of all reasonable and necessary medical treatment covered. If they are left disabled for more than seven days, injured workers should receive partial wages to help them get by.
Our firm handles claims involving:
- Lifting Injuries
- Knee and Leg Injuries
- Head and Brain Injuries
- Back Injuries
- Broken Bones
- Occupational Exposure Illnesses
- Chemical Exposure

It sounds simple but the reality is far more complicated. Employers and their insurance companies have the right to challenge claims, and they often do. They have a thorough knowledge of the workers’ compensation system and know how to use that knowledge to minimize your claim.
Our Attorneys Fight For You Every Step Of The Way
That’s why you need an experienced workers’ compensation attorney who will fight for your best interests. Our attorneys also have a thorough knowledge of the workers’ compensation system. We use our knowledge to fight back against the insurance companies to get you the full amount of benefits that you deserve.
Insurance companies may challenge the need for certain testing or treatment. They may even challenge whether your injury was work-related and argue that you are not owed any benefits. Under the law, they get to choose the doctors that treat your injury. The problem is, these doctors aren’t always concerned about what’s best for you.
Our firm has been helping injured workers in Monmouth and Ocean counties for generations. We can help you prepare for independent medical examinations (IME) to make sure doctors chosen by the insurance company have all the information they need. Our attorneys can arrange an examination with a reputable doctor or specialist for a second opinion.
