Workers’ Compensation Accidents

Newark Workers Compensation Lawyer

Essex County – Hudson County – Throughout Northern New Jersey

Workers’ compensation laws are designed to protect both workers and their employers. Workers who have been injured on the job are entitled to compensation for medical expenses and lost wages. Employers get protection from lawsuits resulting from injuries on the job.

The system should ideally work as designed, but unfortunately, too many times, employees are left without sufficient compensation after suffering injuries on the job. These injuries can include:

  • Injuries typical of slip-and-fall injuries: broken bones, wrist and ankle injuries, head and back injuries
  • Repetitive stress injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Psychiatric conditions triggered by stress on the job
  • Lacerations caused by exposure to dangerous machinery
  • Amputations
  • Toxic substance exposure resulting in respiratory or skin ailments

Employees sometimes assume that making a workers’ compensation claim is simply a matter of filing a form or reporting an injury to their employers’ HR departments. In fact, the procedures involved in a successful workers’ comp claim can be technical, tedious and confusing. Meanwhile, employers’ workers’ compensation insurance carriers often put up roadblocks when employees seek to file legitimate claims.
