Workers' Compensation

Workers' Compensation, sometimes referred to as "Workman's Compensation" or "Worker's Comp", is the name given to a system of laws meant to protect injured workers. The goal is to make sure that somebody who is injured at work receives appropriate medical care and lost wages relating to the on-the-job injury, and if necessary, retraining and rehabilitation, so as to be able to return to the workforce. When workers are killed on the job, members of the workers' families are ordinarily eligible for benefits.

Frequently, injured workers will benefit from consulting an attorney who can advise them in protecting their Worker's Compensation benefits and defending against the premature termination of benefits.

The attorneys at Broscious, Fischer and Zaiter have years of experience successfully representing workers in both New Jersey and Eastern Pennsylvania.

Sometimes employers or even insurance companies will deny claims or even terminate disability payments. the experienced attorneys at Broscious, Fischer and Zaiter are able to navigate through all the paperwork and deliver to their clients much success.
