Negligence in the workplace and your injury in New Jersey

As someone who has suffered from a construction accident in the workplace, you may be wondering what kind of legal claims you can make against the negligent party. It's important to know that any claim you make can be affected by the workers' compensation laws. You will also be affected by the extent to which your employer is responsible for your injuries.

Sidewalk safety and your rights in New Jersey

Sidewalks can be helpful for many reasons; they provide a place for pedestrians to walk off the streets, make paths for bicyclists and are safer for kids walking home from school. Unfortunately, if they aren't maintained, then slipping, tripping or falling on the sidewalk can cause serious harm to pedestrians. A broken or uneven sidewalk should be repaired. If it's not and causes you an injury, you may have a case.

Workers' compensation: Your right to care and compensation

In New Jersey, workers' compensation is fairly straight forward. The 2015 rate for workers' compensation is going to have a maximum payout of $855 to a $228 minimum weekly. Every business in New Jersey does have to have workers' compensation insurance or self-insurance if they are not covered by federal programs. So, if you're not working for the government, it's important to know if your employer is covered if you have an accident at work.

Who is responsible for your premises liability claim?

Have you been hurt on someone's premises in New Jersey? If so, you might be wondering if they can be held liable for your injuries. In some cases, they can be held liable and you can seek compensation. You expect that you're not going to get hurt when you enter a store, and the owner owes you that courtesy.
