Like other states, New Jersey has its fair share of workplace injuries. While most people leave for work each day expecting to come home changed only by fatigue, accidents can and do happen. Workers' compensation is the government's way to protect and provide for those who have been injured while working. When money is a real concern as it is in these modern times, workers' compensation can make all the difference in making it through the injury as whole as possible.
It is probably safe to say that most workers in New Jersey have families to think about. These families need the income provided by a job to survive and to thrive. An unexpected interruption in the flow of funds can impose severe hardships on the entire family unit from spouses to children. As long as an injury occurred on company property (including off-site job locations) and during the course of working, you are entitled by law to file a workers' compensation claim. Any attempt on the part of your employer to prevent you from filing is unlawful.
A personal injury attorney can assist those who have been injured while working in a variety of ways. A lawyer can help injured workers with filing for workers' compensation as well as with filing an appeal if the claim is denied. The attorneys with the Law Office of Jack L.
