Shebell & Shebell Prevails in "Hostile Work Environment" Workers' Comp Case Affirmed by Appellate Division of Superior Court of New Jersey
Date:12/18/2009

Monmouth County law firm successfully wins affirmation of workers' compensation judge finding that City of Asbury Park employee suffered "compensable mental stress"

Ocean, NJ (Lexis Nexis) December 18, 2009 -- The legal team from Shebell & Shebell, a highly regarded personal injury and workers' compensation law firm based in Monmouth County, N.J., prevailed recently in the appeal of a workers' compensation case brought against the City of Asbury Park.

The case, Ross v. City of Asbury Park (Docket No. A-0379-08T3), originated when Shebell & Shebell filed a complaint with the New Jersey Department of Labor's Division of Workers' Compensation in behalf of Lori Ross, an employee of the City of Asbury Park. Ross alleged that she was subjected to a hostile work environment at the City during the time she worked for the office of the city manager from 1998 to 2005.

"After a trial, the workers' compensation judge (Judge Leslie Berich) found that petitioner-employee Lori Ross had suffered compensable mental stress as a result of prolonged exposure to a hostile work environment," wrote the Appellate Court of the Superior Court of New Jersey. "We affirm because the judge was entitled to conclude from her findings, which were supported by credible evidence, that petitioner was subjected to objectively stressful working conditions."

Ross was represented in her case by Raymond Shebell, a veteran workers' compensation attorney and former City Attorney for the City of Asbury Park.

"Since 1927, our family has been dedicated to providing legal services and protecting the rights of the injured in Monmouth and Ocean County," said Shebell, a highly regarded New Jersey personal injury lawyer as well. "We are committed to fighting for the rights of injured people against insurance companies, big business, and the government. Every employee in our law firm takes pride in this mission and will continue to advocate passionately for the injured and wronged."

The lawyers of Shebell & Shebell provide compassionate legal services to injured workers and accident victims in New Jersey. The firm's injury attorneys have decades of experience fighting for the rights of injured people and they are known to be as aggressive in the courtroom as they are sensitive to their clients' needs.
