Sustaining a serious injury in the workplace that puts you out of work is a trying situation. You need to recover from your injuries, but you also need to work to avoid falling into substantial debt over medical expenses and lost wages. What many workers in New Jersey may not be aware of is that they are likely entitled to worker’s compensation benefits.
Nearly all public and private sector employers in the state of New Jersey are legally required to provide some kind of worker’s compensation benefits to their employees. This is a type of insurance that helps employees pull through a work-related injury. Many injuries sustained on-the-job are the result of negligence or recklessness. In addition, employees may contract serious illnesses that put them out of work for weeks. With a strong New Jersey worker’s compensation attorney on your side, you can explore your options for receiving the compensation you deserve.
Employers throughout New Jersey are obligated to provide a safe work environment, yet dozens of employees sustain serious work-related injuries on a daily basis. A serious injury could put you out of work for a lengthy period of time. You should not have to worry about your financial situation when you are recovering; allow a dedicated worker’s compensation lawyer to work on your case. With the help of one of our experienced attorneys, you can receive certain benefits you are entitled to by law. Some of these benefits may include:
- Medical treatment
- Wage replacement
- Permanent disability compensation
- Death benefits for the family members of workers killed on the job
Whether you work in a small or large company, or for the public or private sector, there is a good chance that you are eligible for worker’s compensation benefits. Nearly every employee is covered, and many independent contractors may be as well. Injuries resulting from several types of accidents are covered, including traumatic brain injuries, back and neck injuries, spinal cord injuries, nerve damage, internal injuries, burn injuries, cuts and lacerations, and fractured bones.
Many injuries can result from an accident on the job or from repetitive stress motions. Those working in construction are often susceptible to falling objects, explosions, slip and falls, and toxic chemical exposure.
