We Pursue All Sources Of Work Injury Compensation
All New Jersey employers are required to carry workers’ compensation insurance, which means all New Jersey workers are entitled to workers’ comp benefits after an on-the-job injury. However, workers’ compensation is an “exclusive remedy,” which means even if the injury is your employer’s fault, you cannot sue the employer for more money.
However, if someone besides your employer or a co-worker caused or contributed to your accident, you may be able to recover additional compensation through a third-party lawsuit. Our personal injury attorneys regularly handle workplace accident claims eligible for compensation beyond workers’ comp, such as:
- Injuries caused by dangerous machines
- Ladder and scaffolding accidents
- Motor vehicle accidents on duty
- Electric shock, fire, explosion or toxic exposure
- Slip-and-fall injuries at work sites
