Workers’ Compensation attorneys are frequently searching for experienced and capable board certified doctors for their cases. Membership in our organization can connect physicians throughout New Jersey to attorneys who need client evaluations, exams, and surgeries. Physician members are also frequently utilized by our attorneys for expert testimony during trials, for which they are reasonably compensated.
In addition to the increase in business, NJCOSH’s political activity directly benefits physicians across the state. One of the first major political victories NJCOSH achieved was the blockage of a bill in the state Senate that would have dropped the maximum amount of physicians’ payments for Workers’ Compensation examinations and expert testimonies.
NJCOSH recognizes that physicians who work side by side with lawyers in the Workers’ Compensation field are an integral part of the entire process and should be involved with our organization’s efforts to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the Workers’ Compensation field. As NJCOSH grows increasingly more influential in the field of New Jersey Workers’ Compensation, we want physicians to be a part of the policy making that directly affects them.
