What kind of scaffold caused your construction injury?

If you've been in the construction business for a while, you've probably seen, erected and used a lot of different kinds of scaffolds. When it comes to scaffold related injuries, and pursuing compensation for those injuries, the type of scaffold that hurt you matters. Also, the stage of scaffold use at the time of the injury matters.

File a workers' compensation claim for carpal tunnel syndrome

You might think that a typical office job is virtually free of dangers, but you can get seriously hurt while sitting at a desk typing all day. The injuries don't relate to accidents when you're sitting at a desk, they relate to lack movement and repetitive use. Carpal tunnel syndrome, for example, is a condition that could render you completely incapable of using a mouse and keyboard -- possibly preventing you from being able to perform your job duties.

Can I qualify for wage replacement benefits?

When you get hurt on the job, you might need to take some time off work to get medical care and fully recover from your injuries. In most cases, New Jersey workers can file workers' compensation claim to get financial assistance to pay for their medical care. Did you know -- if you need to spend an extended time away from work recovering from injuries -- that you can pursue wage replacement benefits too?

Did your loved one die on the job?

Any New Jersey spouse is lucky to have a husband and wife who diligently goes to work every day to help make financial ends meet. However, some jobs come with a high level of risk. Although you might not want to think about it -- if your spouse works in construction, as a driver, or as a firefighter or police officer -- your spouse could be facing very real and present dangers every single day.
