At the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A., we have managed the litigation of thousands of matters relating to injured workers. Some of the most common varieties of claims we take on include:
Let's say you suffered a catastrophic on-the-job injury at a New Jersey construction site. You're injured and you can't go to work for the time being because your injuries are so severe. In fact, maybe you'll never be able to work again. You're probably wondering whether you can pursue additional financial damages against an at-fault party in addition to whatever benefits you're receiving from the state's workers' compensation program. In certain cases, the answer might be "yes."
Two employees required fingertip amputations at a manufacturing facility in Pennsauken Township this year. The amputations happened after the manufacturing company's management failed to adhere to warnings that machine guards needed to be installed in order to reduce the chances of such injuries.
The United States Department of Transportation (DOT) recently announced that it is aiming to reduce the deaths caused by auto accidents completely within the next thirty years.
An injured worker who is unable to carry out his or her job duties will need to spend time at home recuperating and healing from his or her injuries. During this time, it could happen that an employer decides to terminate the employee. This is completely unlawful in most cases and the terminated employee may be able to file a wrongful termination and/or discrimination complaint against the employer.
