Workers Compensation Law

The firm founder and lead attorney, Robert A. Olkowitz, has acquired extensive experience and skill in his more than twenty-five years of practicing law.  He has concentrated his practice in the area of injury and in particular workers; compensation law.  When an individual suffers an injury at work, it is necessary to retain a lawyer who specializes in workers’ compensation law.  This is because workers’ compensation is a very specialized area of law, very different that what is shown on television and in the movies.  The workers’ compensation system has its own specialized judges, different court procedures, separate court rules and rules of evidence.  Workers’ compensation courtrooms are usually in separate building away from other courts.

Mr. Olkowitz is a lawyer who has successfully handled workers’ compensation cases for over twenty-five years.  He is not only familiar with the regulations and nuances of how to handle a workers’ compensation claim, but is also familiar with all of the judges and defense lawyers who practice in workers’ compensation court.  Mr. Olkowitz has been certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Workers’ Compensation Attorney since 1999.

If you are injured on the job, you face very serious problems such as which doctor can treat you and who will pay your medical bills.  How will you receive income when you are unable to work?  How will you be compensated if you have a permanent injury or worse, what if you are unable to ever return to work?  If you need medical treatment years after the accident, who will pay for it?

Mr. Olkowitz can answer these questions and fight for you in Court to ensure that your rights are protected against the insurance company.  The best part of the process is that there is no fee to you unless Mr. Olkowitz wins a recovery for you.  The lawyer’s fee is only 20% of the recovery and most times the insurance company will pay more than half of your legal fee when you win.  There is no consultation fee so do not hesitate to call for an appointment.

Some injuries suffered on the job are not readily apparent and may have occurred due to work stress over a long period of time.  These include orthopedic injuries, lung injuries, heart injuries, psychiatric injuries and other types of injuries caused by work experience.  Mr. Olkowitz will obtain the benefits to which you are entitled under the law for these injuries or illnesses.
