Worker fall at work

WORKERS COMPENSATION LAW

When medical bills pile up and your paycheck is no longer coming in due to a workplace injury, the right law firm can help you recover financially while you recover physically. In general, you cannot file a civil lawsuit against an employer or co-employee in the state of New Jersey. Cases of this nature must be filed in workers compensation court where you could be awarded damages that may include the loss of wages, medical expenses, and monetary awards for injuries sustained. It may be possible for you to obtain these damages even while being at fault for the accident.

If your accident occurred at the workplace but by the negligence of a third party, not by the negligence of your employer or the conduct of a co-employee, you may be able to bring a negligence case against that third party in civil court. These types of cases are called third-party cases, and you are allowed to proceed with both a workers compensation and a third party case in their respective divisions.

Workers' compensation can be a headache, especially if the accident occurs when coming to or from work or even while you're on break. Regardless of the circumstances concerning your accident, nobody can take your rights from you, and you deserve to know what they are.
