Results-Oriented New Jersey Workplace Accident Attorney
Injuries on the Job | Your Rights to Workers’ Compensation | Third-Party Claims in Job-Related Accidents | Construction Accidents
In New Jersey, as in all other states, when you have been hurt at work, you have a right to pursue benefits through a workers’ compensation claim. A workers’ compensation claim, however, lets you collect benefits for any injuries sustained because of the actions of your employer or a co-worker.
When you have suffered an injury on the job, caused by someone other than your employer or a fellow employee, you have a right to file a “third party” claim for those injuries. Examples of third party claims include:
- When you’ve been injured because of the breakdown or malfunction of a tool, machine or piece of equipment
- When you’ve suffered injury in a work-related motor vehicle accident
- When you’ve been injured on property owned by a third party while at work
