You can seek workers' compensation in New Jersey

Getting hurt at work isn't something anyone wants to have happen. It means you lose wages from time you have to take off, and on top of that, you're in pain. The financial, physical, and mental strain of an injury can be overwhelming, but if you're hurt at work, don't forget that you could be entitled to workers' compensation. This compensation should cover your medical bills and time off, so you can relax and recover.

Injuries are a way of life in the construction world. In heavy and civil engineering construction, 5.6 cases of injury were reported in New Jersey. That's just one of many kinds of construction, and those other areas of the industry accounted for many more lost days of work and cases of injuries to employees.

For people working at correctional facilities, 10.1 injuries and illnesses were reported in 2014 in New Jersey alone. Over half of those cases resulted in the worker having to be transferred or restricted to duties that could be worked safely.

Similarly, hospitals saw 7.3 cases of injury, nursing and residential care facilities saw 11.3, and the social assistance industry saw 3.8. In four of those cases, the workers weren't able to continue their jobs normally.

In any industry, safety is important. Failing to keep any worker safe is reason enough to receive a claim for workers' compensation. As a worker, you're entitled to compensation when you've been injured at work in most situations, so if you're unable to make a claim or it's denied, it's worth speaking to your attorney. Our website has more information, so you can go into your claim with a good education.
