Workers Compensation Lawyer | Essex County NJ | Birkhold & Maider, LLC
Injuries of any kind can be stressful, but injuries that happen in the workplace – the place where so many of us spend most of our waking hours – it is essential to get help for the road to recovery. Part of that help is retaining the services of attorneys knowledgeable in the nuances of complex New Jersey workers compensation laws.
Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance providing wage replacement and medical benefits to employees injured in the course of employment in exchange for mandatory relinquishment of the employee’s right to sue his or her employer for the tort of negligence. What does this mean in simpler terms? It means that you have a right to compensation for injuries sustained while on the job.
Is New Jersey A No-Fault State?
New Jersey is a no-fault state, which means you can receive workers comp benefits no matter who was at fault for your injury. Employers can also be held to account for a failure to address dangerous conditions which have led to a chronic injury, condition or disease such as respiratory ailments, and repetitive motion injuries, among others.
It’s likely that you don’t have the mindset to deal with protracted legal issues surrounding your workplace injury on your own – and you shouldn’t have to. Having a competent, compassionate advocate in your corner to address the financial needs arising from your injury, will allow you to focus your energy on your recovery. Depending on your individual circumstances, you may be entitled to recovery of lost wages, medical expenses, and/or vocational rehabilitation.
