In New Jersey, workers’ compensation insurance is required by law for most employers. Workers’ comp insurance provides benefits to employees in the event of an on-the-job injury or illness, regardless of who was at fault. Generally, workers’ compensation pays for all medical bills and a portion of lost wages as a result of the injury or illness.
The most common types of work-related accidents include:
Slip and falls
Repetitive stress injuries
Injuries from defective equipment
Exposure to hazardous materials
A workplace accident can have long-term consequences, both physical and financial. Injuries from workplace accidents may lead to permanent disability or disfigurement and can jeopardize your ability to work in the future.
From slips and falls to motor vehicle accidents, workplace injuries occur in many forms. No matter the cause, if you’ve been injured on the job, you may be entitled to workers’ comp benefits. Some of the most common types of workplace injuries include:
Wear and tear injuries such as strains and sprains
Repetitive stress and motion injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
Broken bones and fractures
Back and neck injuries
Burns and cuts
Exposure to hazardous materials
Chronic conditions such as asthma or cancer caused by workplace exposure
Whether you have experienced a sudden injury or the symptoms of a workplace-related illness, it is important to seek medical attention immediately. In addition to obtaining proper treatment, it’s crucial that you contact a New Jersey workers’ compensation attorney as soon as possible so they can help protect your rights and fight for the workers’ compensation benefits you are entitled to under New Jersey law.
When an employee is injured on the job, they may be able to file a workers’ compensation claim with their employer. However, in some cases, the injury was caused by another party – such as independent contractors or subcontractors – who may be held liable for the worker’s personal injuries. This is called a third-party liability claim and can result in a much larger settlement than would otherwise be available through workers’ compensation.
At The Law Offices of Craig Altman, we can help you file a third-party liability claim to seek the compensation you deserve for your workplace injury or illness. Our experienced attorneys understand the complexities of the law and will work tirelessly to ensure that your rights are protected and that you receive all the compensation you are entitled to.
