Reopening Your Workers’ Compensation Claim
The workers’ compensation system exists to help injured workers get back on their feet, both physically and financially, and to get people back to work as soon as they are able. But what happens in the event that you return to work only to exacerbate the injury for which you received workers’ comp in the first place?
In such situations, you are able to reopen your case. For more than 50 years, the Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., has handled all facets of New Jersey workplace injury claims. During that time our lawyers have guided many clients through the complex issues related to reopening workers’ compensation claims.

Important Information About Time Limits
It is important to consult with our New Jersey work injury attorneys immediately after your injury worsens. Workers’ comp claims can be reopened no later than two years after the final payment of workers’ compensation benefits, so immediate action is often called for.
Our lawyers understand the New Jersey workers’ compensation system, and will act quickly and decisively to have your claim reopened. We will vigorously pursue the medical treatment benefits, temporary disability benefits and partial permanent disability award benefits you need to make ends meet as you again deal with the effect of a workplace injury.
Acting Swiftly To Protect Your Physical And Financial Well-Being
Though treatment and rehabilitation are designed to repair injuries, no treatment is perfect. Old workplace injuries can flare up, manifesting as either the same symptoms you had before or completely new ones. It is important to contact our office as soon as this occurs so we can protect not only your physical well-being but also your financial well-being. If you obtain treatment without the authorization of the workers’ compensation insurance carrier, you may have to pay for it yourself. When retained, the Law Offices of Kaplan & Kaplan, P.C., will take immediate action to get you to an authorized treating physician. If the insurance company does not comply, we will file the necessary motion to force them.
