Workers' Compensation Archives

Is the job over, but the pain still with you?

If you're having a break after your seasonal job ended, you're not alone. Millions of people in New Jersey have seasonal jobs in the big holiday rush. Many are in retail, but the end of the year can be big for fulfillment centers and construction jobs as well.

OSHA's new website to address workplace injury at hospitals

Hospital workers in Burlington, New Jersey, can be depended on to treat patients with injuries or illnesses, including those who suffered injuries at work. However, hospital employees are no different from any other average worker, because they also experience many serious workplace hazards.

OSHA fines New Jersey nursing home almost $50K for violations

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has cited a New Jersey nursing home for violations after an investigation showed the home's laundry department was hiding its own "dirty laundry."

Two NJ workers injured in tree trimming accident

Everyday throughout New Jersey, workers risk their own well-being to carry out their job requirements. Construction workers often find themselves at close proximity to moving vehicles, extreme heights, and heavy machinery. Safety precautions and regulations are often put in place to protect these workers, but sometimes lapses in maintaining a safe work environment lead to serious injuries. When this happens, an injured worker rightly expects to be taken care of, but he may need a lawyer to obtain the compensation he is entitled to receive.

Moldy lottery tickets cause workers' compensation claims

Recently, two New Jersey Lottery employees filed worker's compensation claims alleging to have been sickened by moldy lottery tickets damaged by Hurricane Sandy. The employees' workers' compensation claim states that they were exposed to over 400,000 moldy lottery tickets for a period of six months at the New Jersey state lottery headquarters in Lawrence and were sickened after they were asked to audit the tickets by their supervisor.

Proposed bill would extend benefits for workers' spouses

A bill recently proposed in the New Jersey state legislature would extend the eligibility of widows and widowers of emergency workers to continue to receive workers' compensation benefits even if they re-marry. The bill has caused controversy, however, as many municipalities claim that it would increase expenses for workers' compensation benefits and, therefore, would be fiscally unsound.

Due to increase, workers' compensation claims reviewed closely

A former supervisor at the Trenton Water Works, who also happens to be the half-brother of the city's mayor, may face a battle to obtain workers' compensation from two separate claims amounting to $5,000. The city's council has decided it wanted to look into his claims further before approving a settlement. The council may be particularly concerned in this instance of workers' compensation claims because the man is currently jailed for allegedly being involved in the misuse of city workers and resources.

New Jersey golf course worker pinned beneath fallen tree

Readers of our New Jersey personal injury blog are aware of the many types of accidents for which victims may seek compensation, from drunk driving accidents to incidents of medical malpractice. In general, if one person or party's negligence caused injury to another, that negligent party may be held liable for damages. Sometimes, however, an accident occurs that was not necessarily anyone else's fault - what does this mean for the injury victim? If the accident occurred while the victim was at work, workers' compensation may be an option.

New Jersey CEO pleads guilty to workers' compensation fraud

Recently, the head of a Trenton-based construction company pleaded guilty to stealing more than $450,000 in worker's compensation-related money. The man was charged with two counts of second degree theft by deception. Specifically, he was charged with sending false information to the worker's compensation insurance carrier for his company.
