WORKERS COMPENSATION LAW

The state of New Jersey does not allow for an employee to file a civil lawsuit against an employer or co-employee, instead these cases need to be filed and relegated in workers' compensation court. Losing a case against your employee can cost you compensation in the form of damages to be reimbursed which may include lost wages, any medical bills resulting from injury, and even a monetary settlement for the injury sustained. These damages may be fulfilled even if the employee was at fault in the accident. The attorneys at Sasso Law have decades of experience representing employers, insurers and third-party administrators in all aspects of workers’ compensation claims. We are able to pursue and defend appeals with speed and accuracy needed while reevaluating the claim regularly to keep monetary costs associated with the defense claim down.

If an employee was injured at work, through no fault of the employer or the conduct of another employee, but through a third party, the affected employee my be able to bring a negligence case against the third party in a civil court. These types of cases are generally referred to as third-party cases, and the employee would be allowed to proceed with both a workers compensation claim and a third-party claim in the workers' compensation and civil divisions respectively.

Workers compensation cases can be problematic, especially if they occur outside of the workplace or during a scheduled break. No matter the circumstances of the accident you have rights and deserve to know what those rights are. Sasso law can help you.
