If you are a dedicated worker who has been injured at work, you probably have a variety of crucial concerns beyond the actual injury. These concerns may include questions like these that many potential clients have asked:
Hi Craig. I recently got hurt at work. How will this work injury affect my job and can I lose my job if I make a workers’ compensation claim?
Rest easy where those questions are concerned. New Jersey state law requires companies to carry workers’ compensation insurance. People do get injured on the job sometimes, and so by law, companies also have to allow you to keep your post.
Hello Altman team. I’m a workaholic and want to go back to work, but I can only work part-time. Can my workplace give me a part-time job if I can’t return to work full time? Also, how will this workers’ compensation claim affect my relationship with my boss?
The attorneys at the Law Offices of Craig A. Altman, in Cherry Hill, have handled workers’ comp cases for more than 20 years. In that time, the team has encountered a wide variety of complex situations and helped each client deal with complications affecting their livelihoods, including returning to work and their relationships at work.

And although the answers to those specific questions can vary depending on your case, Craig Altman and his team have the answer you are looking for.
Hello Altman law team. I have a question. Could I qualify for both SSD and Workers’ Comp benefits?
Among other services that the Law Offices of Craig A. Altman provide to our workplace injury clients, the team of worker’s comp experts carefully evaluates each potential case to determine whether the claim qualifies for Social Security Disability benefits.
This research is essential as our team often finds that other lawyers don’t understand the rules related to SSD, absence from work, and returning to work through “work incentives.”

There are many kinds of workplace injuries, but the most common usually fall into one of two categories:
The first category is a sudden or traumatic event. Examples of this kind of injury include car accidents, workplace accidents involving tools or equipment, explosions on site, or a fall injury.
Construction accidents that include handling materials typically fall under this category.
Strains and sprains from lifting injuries that affect health workers are also sometimes sudden events.
A worker hurt on the job is usually eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, as well as temporary total disability, or permanent disability, and in some cases a monetary award.
The second category is an occupational disease that typically occurs over a period of time. Injuries in this category include a wide variety of repetitive stress injuries. Workers whose daily job tasks take place inside moldy buildings may become disabled as a result of “sick building syndrome.” Exposure to material such as asbestos dust could cause asbestosis or other pulmonary diseases.
Both categories of injuries are viable types of workers’ compensation claims — those triggered by single-event injuries and those involving occupational diseases. The expert team of attorneys at the Law Offices of Craig A. Altman can and will help injury victims throughout Cherry Hill and beyond into Camden County and the team often takes on the most challenging cases throughout the state of New Jersey.
For example, an extremely challenging complication that can transform a routine workers’ comp claim into an intricate work injury case is when an employer insists that the company’s workers are independent contractors. By doing this the company is attempting to make those workers not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. But the Craig Altman team has seen this ploy dozens of times over the years and our experts can often demonstrate that an alleged “independent contractor” was working under the specific direction and control of an employer. This distinction, in the eyes of New Jersey State Law Code, makes that worker an employee of the company in relation to properly filed New Jersey workers’ compensation benefits.
Work injury claims coming in all shapes, sizes, and varieties. If, for instance, another person or entity besides your employer was negligent and this negligence contributed to or caused your workplace injury, you may be able to file a personal injury claim or lawsuit against that party.
Your third-party liability claim will be a separate legal matter that typically falls under a different set of practice areas apart from your workers’ compensation claim, which involves your employer’s insurance company.
