Work injuries can be devastating, and they can occur in a variety of ways. Work injuries routinely happen on construction sites, loading docks, factory warehouses, on construction equipment, on scaffolding, and can involve defective machinery and/or unsafe products. They often occur when safety protocols are absent or have been ignored, such as a violation of OSHA.
In most cases, no matter whose fault the workplace accident is, even if it is your own, you are entitled to benefits under the Workers’ Compensation laws in New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Unfortunately though, it is not uncommon for workers to be denied benefits after filing their initial claim. When this happens, it is critical to consult an experienced Workers’ Compensation lawyer in New Jersey for help with filing an appeal.
Injuries at work can often involve two cases instead of one. For example, if you are injured in an accident while driving for work purposes, it can constitute a workplace injury and also give rise to a personal injury case against the driver of the vehicle who caused the accident. Another example is if you are injured on a construction site because of a faulty scaffold or an OSHA violation. In this instance, you may have a claim against your employer for workers’ compensation, and you may also have a personal injury claim against the scaffold company or the entity that violated OSHA.
The laws of Workers’ Compensation govern injuries at work. If you are injured at work, there are certain benefits that you may be entitled to receive such as wage benefits, medical benefits and even permanent disability benefits, depending on the state in which you reside. Workplace injury cases are very fact sensitive and require a thorough legal analysis so that you can be apprised of your rights and benefits to which you are entitled under the law.
Workplace accidents can produce a wide variety of personal injuries, which include, but are not limited to the following:
- Altered smell and taste
- Amputation / loss of limb
- Brain and head injuries
- Burn injuries
- Emotional or psychological distress
- Eye injuries / loss of vision
- Joint injuries, including shoulder and knee tears
- Ligament injuries
- Muscle strains and sprains
- Neck and back injuries
- Nerve injuries
- Paraplegic / quadriplegic
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
