Representing Injured Workers in New Jersey
The attorneys at Gebhardt & Kiefer have successfully helped many injured workers in central and northwestern New Jersey recover compensation for:
- Medical care as long as you need it
- A weekly benefit check for as long as you are unable to work
- A lump sum payment for any percentage of permanent disability that remains after you reach maximum medical improvement
At our law firm, we represent injured workers on a contingency fee system authorized by the Workers' Compensation statutes. Our fee is typically a percentage of the lump sum payment we negotiate.
Protecting Your Rights
Many injured workers don't receive all of the benefits they deserve because they were not aware of the rules and the process for filing a Workers' Compensation application. Our lawyers have extensive experience with the Workers' Compensation claim system in New Jersey, and guide you every step of the way. We have handled all types of worker injuries, including:
- Neck and back injuries
- Carpal tunnel injuries
- Illness caused by exposure to toxic mold, dust or other environmental conditions
- Stress-related disabilities
William Rudnik is the head of the Workers' Compensation Department at Gebhardt & Kiefer. He has represented both public entities (respondents) in defending claims and injured workers (petitioners) in filing claims.
