THIRD PARTY CLAIMS FOR WORK-RELATED ACCIDENTS

When you have been hurt on the job, you have the right to seek benefits under workers' compensation laws. It's important to understand, though, that the workers' compensation laws only apply to injuries caused by the negligence or your employer or a co-employee. If you are injured by the wrongful acts of a third party, you can file a lawsuit in court to recover damages and you won't be limited or restricted by your workers' compensation recovery.

DETERMINING IF YOUR INJURY IS WORK-RELATED--PART TWO

To recover workers' compensation benefits in New Jersey, you must demonstrate that you were hurt and that the injury occurred while you in the normal course of your employment. We've discussed whether you can seek workers' compensation benefits for injuries suffered on a break or while traveling. This blog looks at your rights when you are injured at company event, or as a consequence of misconduct.

DETERMINING IF YOUR INJURY IS WORK-RELATED--PART ONE

To successfully recover workers' compensation benefits in New Jersey, you must show two things: that you were injured and that the injury was sustained during the performance of normal duties of the job. In most instances, it's not an issue-if you are hurt in a work-related accident, if you can show that the repetitive stress of your job caused an injury, or if you can show exposure to a toxic substance that led to an illness, you'll likely meet the test. But there are some situations where questions can arise.

YOUR RIGHTS AFTER A CONSTRUCTION SITE INJURY

According to Bureau of Labor statistics, the construction industry is one of the most popular, but also the most dangerous, occupations in the country, with nearly 7 million workers, and almost 1,000 deaths annually. Because much of the work is done at significant heights above the ground and because the work often involves the use of heavy equipment and power tools, the risk of serious injury, even from a seemingly minor accident, is great. If you have been hurt on a construction job, what are your options?

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.

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.

WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS AFTER A WORK - RELATED TRAFFIC ACCIDENT?

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.

NEW JERSEY STATE TROOPER SAVES LIFE OF WORKER INJURED AT CONSTRUCTION SITE ON GSP

A NJ state trooper is credited with saving the life of a worker who was injured at a construction site along the Garden State Parkway. Trooper Mike Kleissler was called to the site in Brick after a worker was injured while cutting concrete pipe for drainage and the diamond saw he was using kicked out of the pipe and reflected back to his body. Trooper Kleissler arrived on the scene to find Ryan Jenkins, 31, with a gash in his check that went all the way to the bone. Kleissler quickly responded by using a packet of Combat Gauze that clots blood quickly and stops bleeding. Jenkins was rushed to the Jersey Shore Medical Center, where he still is recovering from injuries.
