Passionate About Helping Injured Workers

Most people injured on the job in New Jersey are entitled to compensation from their employer's workers' compensation insurance carrier. An injury does not have to be catastrophic in order to entitle you to benefits. However, to help you through the claim process and maximize the compensation you receive, it is always advisable to seek out the assistance of an experienced workers' comp lawyer.

You can find those experienced lawyers at Rothenberg, Rubenstein, Berliner & Shinrod, LLC. Our firm has attorneys who focus exclusively on work injury claims, which allows us to give clients the kind of thorough, knowledgeable representation they deserve. Not only do we provide legal representation, but we also provide compassionate service. If you need to find a doctor, we can help.
