Where do workplace accidents happen?
Just about anywhere. You might expect construction sites and factories to be hazardous places to work. But when employers take shortcuts on training or safety protocol, even offices, stores, hospitals and highways become the scene of workplace accidents. In these situations, we may be able to show that the employer’s negligence caused the injury, and that the worker is entitled to compensation.
Doesn’t Workers’ Comp cover workplace injuries?
Yes, workers who are injured on the job or who become sick due to workplace conditions are entitled to Workers’ Compensation for some of their medical expenses and some of their lost wages. However, in some situations it may be possible to file a claim against a third party for additional compensation – perhaps a subcontractor or an equipment manufacturer. The workers’ comp laws can be confusing, so it’s a good idea to seek the help of a New Jersey workplace accident lawyer any time you or your family member is injured on the job.
