What Should You Do After a Workplace Injury?
If you or a family member was injured in a work accident, you should notify your employer as soon as possible and request medical treatment. By notifying your employer that you have been injured on the job, you become entitled to receive pay for the wages you lose while being treated for your injuries.
Then you should contact us. The New Jersey workplace injury attorneys at the law office of Greenberg Minasian, LLC, have more than 15 years of experience helping individuals recover compensation for accident injuries.
Workers’ compensation provides compensation to employees injured while on the job. However, it also provides protection to employers. You may not sue your employer directly for a workplace injury; you must go through workers’ compensation. New Jersey workers’ compensation claims can be technical and frustrating. Employers’ workers’ compensation insurance carriers may put up roadblocks to legitimate claims.
Our New Jersey workplace injury attorneys can help increase your chances of receiving the full amount of compensation that is available to you. We understand workers’ compensation laws and are adept negotiators and trial lawyers.
While you can’t bring a lawsuit against your employer, you may be able to bring a third-party claim against another person or company liable for your injuries. For example, if you were injured by a defective product (such as defective scaffolding ), you may have a third-party liability claim against the company that built/manufactured that product. If another person’s actions or inactions caused your injury, you can also bring suit against him or her.
Our New Jersey workplace injury attorneys have extensive experience with third-party liability claims. We can evaluate your case and determine whether a third-party claim would be beneficial to you.
