Third Party Personal Injury Claims When You Are Hurt at Work

Third-Party-Claims-for-Work-Related-Injury-300x200.jpg

WRONGFUL DEATH CLAIMS--AN OVERVIEW

If your loved one has died because of the carelessness or negligence of another person, you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses. A lawsuit can't bring your loved one back, but it can minimize the financial hardship you suffer as a result.

NEW JERSEY SLIP AND FALL LAW MAY COVER ADJOINING PROPERTY

In New Jersey, as in other states, under what is known as "premises liability," the owner of commercial or residential property has a duty to maintain the premises so as to minimize the risk of injury to anyone legally on the property. Until 2013, the owner of property was only responsible for hazardous conditions on his or her property. A New Jersey Superior Court ruling has changed that, at least with respect to businesses and subcontractors.

NEW JERSEY SENATE ACTS ON BEHALF OF INJURED CORRECTIONS OFFICERS

After state corrections officers staged a mock funeral on the steps of the state House last month, with some wearing Chris Christie masks, the New Jersey Senate responded by approving legislation that would establish a compensation program for New Jersey corrections officers who have been attacked or injured by inmates in their custody. State and local police officers already have access to such benefits when they are hurt by detainees. Legislators say the bill will bring corrections officers into parity with their colleagues.

WATER CONTAMINATION CONCERN IN NEW JERSEY

In light of national scandal involving high levels of lead in the drinking water in Flint, Michigan, officials across the country, including New Jersey, have found it prudent to determine whether similar problems exist in their states. In January, 2016, New Jersey state officials were put on notice of concerns about the toxicity levels in drinking water at a dozen systems across the state. They include the Atlantic City Municipal Utilities Authority; the Raritan, Logan and Pennsgrove systems of New Jersey American; the Montclair Water Bureau; Greenwich Township; Garfield Water Department; Rahway Water Department; Brick Township; Paulsboro Water Department; Orange Water Department; and South Orange Water Department.

CAR ACCIDENTS ON THE JOB

If you are hurt while working in New Jersey, you have a right to seek benefits through the state's workers' compensation program. But what if you are injured in a car accident while on the job? Are you limited to the benefits available through a work comp claim? Not necessarily.

TRUCK ACCIDENT CLAIMS--NOT THE SAME AS A CAR ACCIDENT CASE

If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a commercial truck, such as a 18-wheeler, tractor-trailer or semi, the process for obtaining compensation for all your losses will look similar to a car accident claim, but may also have substantial differences.

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT RATE ON THE RISE--CHEAP GAS CONSIDERED A FACTOR

OFFICIALS FEAR DRAMATIC RISE IN MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

Gas prices have dipped below $2.00 a gallon in many communities across the country, the lowest they have been in more than five years. Another statistic that has government officials worried, though-the last time gas prices were this cheap, there was also a dramatic increase in the number of motor vehicle accidents nationwide. Before the plummeting of gas prices in 2009, officials had seen more than four consecutive years of declining rates of death and injury in motor vehicle accidents. Throughout the time prices remained low (2008-2009), accident rates remained high. As soon as fuel prices went back up, accident rates dropped precipitously.

MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS--PEDESTRIAN INJURIES

The Common Types of Injuries Suffered in Pedestrian Accidents

LIABILITIES IN INTOXICATION ACCIDENTS

Drunk and impaired drivers can be held liable for any injuries and deaths they cause. In cases where a bar, restaurant, liquor store or party host serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, who later causes an injury or fatal accident, that person or establishment can also be held liable under New Jersey's dram shop law. Here, it's important to thoroughly reconstruct the events that happened prior to a drunk driving accident in order to establish a timeline of when a drunk driver started drinking, how much he or she likely had, and the time frame involved. Reviewing bar tabs, credit card purchases, security camera footage (if available) and eyewitness testimony can shed considerable light on whether or not a drunk driver was visibly intoxicated when he or she was served alcohol.
