If you become ill or injured while working, you are entitled to recover for your losses through the state’s workers’ compensation program. Even if you are injured while performing a work related errand, traveling on business, or even attending a mandated business-related social function, you are entitled to receive workers’ compensation benefits. New Jersey has a no-fault based workers’ compensation system which means regardless of who is at fault for your illness or injuries, if you sustained them while on the job, you are entitled to recover for wage and medical losses.
Workmans compensation covers all physical injuries, some of which include, neck, back and shoulder injuries, including broken bones, sprains, damage to discs, strains; arm and hand injuries; injuries to foot, knee and legs; repetitive injuries, amputation or loss of use of a body part, traumatic brain injuries; severe burns; nerve damage; hearing damage; occupation related disease (mesothelioma/asbestos); and death.
Even if your condition (either illness or injury) was exacerbated by working at your job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. At the Grossman Law Firm, LLC, we fight for those suffering workplace injuries to maximize fair and timely workers’ compensation benefits from their employers and their insurance carriers. We also pursue third party claims in the form of personal injury actions against the at fault non-employer party. If you have been injured during the course of your employment we will investigate whether you would have a valid claim against the manufacturer of the machinery or any other at fault party.
