South Orange Lawyer - Reopening Old Workers' Compensation Claims

After you were injured on the job, you received workers' compensation benefits. Now your symptoms have come back, but your case is closed. Is there anything you can do to reopen your claim?

Although it's always best to structure workers' compensation claims to take future protection against re-occurrence of your symptoms into account, that's not always possible. If you are facing unforeseen problems with a past injury, the Law Office of David A. Bolson may be able to help.

An experienced workers' compensation lawyer, David A. Bolson knows how to demonstrate that your new or recurring symptoms should be covered by workers' compensation. He can petition the New Jersey Division of Workers' Compensation or a judge of Compensation to reopen your claim or extend your workers' compensation benefits.

Attorney David A. Bolson understands that the future is unpredictable and you can't always foresee all the ways your injury could impact your life in the long term. Workers' compensation claims may qualify to be re-examined when:

  • Your doctor recommends continuing or additional treatment for a worsening condition, which will require additional workers' compensation benefits
  • It can be proven that a new condition was caused by the original injury, or a previously covered injury is made worse by job conditions, such as repetitive motions

There Is a Time Limit to Reopen Your Claim

Petitions to reopen workers compensation claims must be filed within two years from the last payment you received, and also within six years from the original injury. Don't wait until the last minute. If you think your workers' compensation benefits won't be enough to cover all of your bills, call an attorney as soon as possible.
