Workplace Accidents and Job-Related Injury
Don’t assume your employer and the insurance carrier are looking out for your best interests. Legitimate workers’ compensation claims are often rejected, or workers are unknowingly denied full benefits.
Contact Martin Kane Kuper, LLC as soon as possible after you are injured. We stand up for injured workers in the Brunswicks, Middlesex County and surrounding counties of New Jersey. Call 1-877-NJLAW4U for a free consultation and representation by an experienced workers’ compensation lawyer.
Full Benefits for Work Injury
Attorney Eric Kuper brings 20 years of experience to your case. If you cannot work because of a workplace accident or work-related injury, he works to get you qualified for all entitled benefits:
- Coverage of your medical care
- Temporary benefits to replace lost wages
- Compensation for partial disability or disfigurement
- Settlements for permanent total disability
- Physical rehabilitation and job retraining benefits
- Death benefits for a family member’s work-related fatality
Martin Kane Kuper, LLC has handled every type of workers’ comp claim, including falls from heights, slip and falls, back injury, knee or shoulder injury, amputations, head trauma, on-duty vehicle accidents, broken bones, burns and lacerations. We have also secured benefits for occupational disease claims (toxic exposure or repetitive motion injuries).
New Jersey Law provides that if you are out of work due to a work related injury, you are entitled to income or temporary disability benefits. These benefits are based upon your average weekly wages. Typically, the benefit is 70% of your lost weekly wages and is paid until you are medically cleared to return to work.
If your income benefits are being denied or delayed, you should contact Martin Kane & Kuper to discuss your options.
If you are injured at work your employer is required to provide necessary medical treatment and is required to pay for that medical treatment until you reach maximum medical improvement. Since New Jersey Law requires your employer to provide medical treatment you are required to see and treat with doctors your employer sends you to.
If a problem should develop with the care being provided to you, you should contact Martin Kane & Kuper to discuss your options.
Permanent Partial/Permanent Total Benefits
Depending upon the nature and extent of the injury you sustained in a work related accident or illness, you may be entitled to either a permanent partial disability or permanent total disability award. Injuries that are common in work related accidents leading to such awards include:
- Neck and back injuries
- Head trauma
- Broken bones
- Burns and lacerations
- Knee injuries
- Shoulder injuries
- Eye injuries
- Occupational illnesses
- Respiratory illnesses

If you have been injured at work and would like to discuss your legal options, please contact Martin Kane & Kuper.
Beyond Workers’ Compensation?
Mr. Kuper also explores whether there is a third-party personal injury claim above and beyond workers’ compensation, such as negligence leading to a construction injury or a product liability lawsuit against the manufacturer of defective workplace machinery.
You are entitled under New Jersey law to employer-paid benefits regardless of fault for any work-related injury. If you were injured, call us to help maximize your compensation. If your claim has already been denied, your benefits cut, or an employer has retaliated for filing a claim, call us to fight for your rights.
