About Workplace Injuries & Claims in Northern and Central New Jersey

A workplace should not only be a productive and efficient environment, but a safe one as well. Most employers understand that it makes economic sense to provide a secure workplace for their employees. Abiding by OSHA guidelines as well as instituting common sense procedures is a legal requirement, not just a good idea. Companies and their contractors that flout safety through ignorance or willful neglect, thereby causing serious injury to their workers, should face consequences.

According to NIOSH (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health), a staggering 12 to 13 workers die every day and some 4 million are injured every year in the United States from work-related incidents. Most of these casualties result from falls, other impact and penetration by sharp objects, many of which are preventable, if only proper safety procedures had been followed.

Employees are at times reluctant to seek compensation due to fear of retaliation from their employers or even out of a sense of loyalty. During these difficult times, it is comforting to know that workers do not have to face this trauma on their own.

The New Jersey Workers Compensation laws provide legal remedies for any worker who is injured on the job. The law provides for the necessary medical care and temporary benefits, and ultimately a monetary award for permanency regardless of fault. It is very important for you to immediately inform your employer of your injury when you are hurt. This will enable you to receive the appropriate benefits.

Workers Compensation claims can be very complicated. That is why it is important to immediately contact us when you are injured. We will explain to you the nuances of New Jersey Workers Compensation law.

  • We will facilitate your access to appropriate medical care for your work related injury.
  • We will facilitate that the temporary income benefits to which you are entitled are timely paid to insure your financial stability while recovering from your injury.
  • We will file the necessary Workers Compensation Claim Petition and deal with the insurance carrier as necessary to protect your rights and recover a permanency award on your behalf.
  • We will pursue a Third Party Lawsuit in the event it is determined that some other person or entity other than your employer is responsible for the accident that caused your injuries.

If you need help with a work related injury claim, a workers compensation claim or lawsuit involving a workplace injury, contact New Jersey Workplace Injury and Workers Compensation Attorney Edward Lutz today.
