At the Jersey City law firm of Krivitzky, Springer & Feldman, we apply our 85+ years of combined experience and knowledge of New Jersey workers’ compensation and negligence laws to help injured and assaulted workers understand their rights, and collect the benefits to which they are entitled. This can include payment of medical bills, temporary disability for time out of work, and compensation for permanent injuries.
Injuries Caused by a Work-Related Assault
New Jersey workers who sustain injuries in a work-related attack or assault may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for payment of medical expenses and lost wages. Generally, work-related assaults fall under one of two categories:
- Assaults involving a coworker: When an assault by a coworker is derived from a work-related argument or incident, the assault victim may be entitled to compensation for his or her injuries under New Jersey workers’ compensation law.
- Assaults related to the nature of their job: Certain workers face the risk of being assaulted every time they set foot on the job, such as nightclub bouncers, security guards, parole officers, probation officers, hospital orderlies, police officers, or prison guards. If you were assaulted in the course of your job, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits for your injuries. You may also have a valid third-party claim against the assaulting party, or other entity, such as a security company.
