Also Representing Clients In Personal Injury Cases
If you are injured and unable to work, your recuperation can be complicated by the stress of mounting bills. New Jersey workers' compensation benefits and Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) are designed to provide a safety net for injured workers. The process of obtaining these benefits, however, is complex and often initially leads to denied claims.
At the Law Office of Paul Tendler in Somers Point, I advocate for injured workers by helping them obtain those workers' compensation benefits and/or social security benefits that they are entitled to receive.
My role is to maximize your benefits and ensure that you receive the medical care that you require. I also assist individuals who qualify to receive Supplemental Security Income benefits (SSI), which is a government-funded, needs-based program for individuals with disabilities who have never worked or do not have enough work credits to receive SSDI benefits.
I do not receive an attorney fee unless I obtain workers' compensation or Social Security benefits for you. My fees in these cases are set by the New Jersey workers' compensation statute and the Social Security rules and regulations.
Experienced Advocacy For South Jersey Residents
I have represented injured parties in Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties for more than 30 years. In that time, I have successfully handled several hundred workers' comp and SSDI/SSI claims.
I take great care to provide highly personalized service. My clients work directly with me from the free initial consultation through the resolution of your case. I will know every detail of your case and attend every hearing with you. If you have questions, I am quick to respond. I emphasize clear communication throughout and take the time to explain every option, as well as any short- or long-term consequences.
I work with injured workers from a broad spectrum of industries, including construction and laborers, casino employees, industrial workers and office professionals. It is important to note that New Jersey workers' compensation laws cover injuries that result from a single workplace accident as well as occupational injuries that occur over time as a result of repeated stress or "wear and tear."
