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.

PROTECTING CHILD WELFARE WORKERS AND EMERGENCY RESPONDERS

Recent vetoes by Governor Chris Christie have left child welfare workers, emergency responders and public safety workers in the lurch, says Ann Twomey, president of the Health Professionals and Allied Employees, the union that represents those workers. 

SUPERIOR COURT OR FORTHRIGHT -- WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU?

In many insurance policies in New Jersey, there's a dispute resolution clause that says, essentially, that you can choose to file a complaint in Superior Court, or you can choose to have your dispute resolved by Forthright, the administrative agency set up to settle disputes regarding PIP, or Personal Injury Protection, benefits.

WORKERS' COMPENSATION - MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENTS

RECOVERING WORKER'S COMPENSATION FOR A MOTOR VEHICLE ACCIDENT

When a machine malfunctions at work and you are injured, there seems no question that you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits for lost wages, medical expenses and rehabilitation. If the wrongful conduct of another employee causes you injury, you can also seek compensation for your losses. But what if you are injured in a car or motor vehicle accident, especially when the person causing the accident is unrelated to your employer? The good news-if you meet certain conditions, you have a right to workers' compensation benefits. You may even be able to seek damages in addition to workers' compensation benefits.

GETTING COMPENSATION WHEN YOU HAVE BEEN INJURED BY A DRUNK DRIVER

When you have been hurt in a car accident involving a drunk driver, obtaining damages to cover your losses may be more challenging than in other types of motor vehicle accidents. Statistics show that many persons causing accidents while driving drunk are repeat offenders. As such, there's a distinct possibility that they may be driving without insurance. Here are some of the ways that you can pursue compensation for your losses.

CONSTRUCTION SITE ACCIDENTS INVOLVING SITE DEBRIS

It's a pretty common occurrence for contractors, subs and suppliers to leave materials strewn across a construction site. But just because it happens doesn't mean that you can't rightfully seek compensation when you've been injured as a result.

FETAL HEART MONITORING AND BIRTH INJURIES

Fetal heart monitoring is essential in alerting nurses and doctors to potential problems during birth. During labor, fetal heart monitoring can signal the onset of fetal distress and other problems that may result in the need to perform a C-section or undertake certain delivery maneuvers during birth. In most cases, fetal distress results in insufficient oxygen to the brain, resulting in cerebral palsy and other hypoxic injuries. The long-term effect of hypoxic brain injury can include cognitive impairment, physical and mental development difficulties, brain damage, and speech problems.
