Livingston Workers Compensation Attorney

If you have been injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation. You should consult an experienced workers’ compensation and personal injury attorney to ensure that you understand your options and receive the maximum compensation for your injuries. An experienced Workers Compensation Attorney can help you determine if parties other than your employer contributed to your injury or accident, and if higher compensation is available to you.

Our attorneys at the Lustbader Law Firm in Livingston, New Jersey, offer free consultations to help you understand your options and how we may be able to help you. We have extensive experience with on-the-job accidents, including determining which parties are responsible for the accident. Similar to trucking accidents and construction accidents, workers compensation and job site accidents can be very complex, especially in terms of determining fault when multiple parties may be at fault

We represent injured workers and their families throughout New Jersey. Our legal excellence has been recognized by other lawyers and the judiciary, and we have an AV rating* from Martindale-Hubbell.
