Suffering an injury is stressful enough. When you suffer an on-the-job injury or illness you have the added anxiety of how your injury could affect your job and how your employer is going to treat you. If you are injured on the job, your situation is regulated by the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act and must follow all procedures set forth therein. If you try to handle the matter on your own or have an attorney that does not know this area well, your benefits and medical care can be cut short, leaving you with no remedy.
Learn what your rights are as an employee who has been injured on the job. You may be entitled to compensation for medical bills and rehabilitation, compensation for loss of bodily function, replacement of lost wages and vocational rehabilitation (retaining) if you are no longer able to work at the same job as a result of your injuries. We will also explore any additional remedy for any liable party who is not your employer. In these situations, you will be entitled to Worker’s Compensation and a Third-Party Lawsuit.
