When you work in construction, you are constantly surrounded by delivery trucks, heavy equipment, and other vehicles. But you can also sustain injuries in a work-related motor vehicle accident if you work behind a desk most of the time. Anytime you travel for work, even if it's just to get supplies or attend a cross-town meeting, you are at risk of injury in a car or truck accident. When you do suffer injuries in a job-related crash, you want to take all appropriate measures to pursue full and fair compensation.
A common misconception is that, in order to seek benefits under the New Jersey workers' compensation laws, you must be able to point to a traumatic event, to some accident or mishap that clearly caused your injury. This is not true! While proving the cause of a repetitive motion or stress injury can be challenging, an experienced and knowledgeable attorney can help you get the benefits you need and to which you are entitled.
