Common workers’ compensation claim scenarios

| Feb 16, 2017 | Workplace Accident

At the Law Office of Jack L. Stillman, P.A., we help New Jersey workers get the financial benefits they need to recover from injuries. We also help them seek benefits to pay for their living expenses while they’re recovering from their injuries and unable to work. During our experience representing New Jersey employees, we regularly handle the following issues:

— Repetitive stress injuries: Repetitive stress injuries can happen to people who type a lot, people who play musical instruments, people who sew, people who knit and people who perform all manner of repetitive tasks on a factory floor.

— Third-party accident claims: Sometimes a worker suffers a serious on the job injury. Because workers’ compensation insurance covers the worker, he or she will be able to get financial compensation to pay for medical care. However, if the injury was the result of negligence on the part of a third-party, that is not the employer, then it might be possible to file a personal injury claim against that party in addition to the work comp matter.

— Permanent and temporary disability: Temporary disability is awarded when a worker is hurt so badly that he or she cannot return to work for some time. Permanent disability is awarded to workers who have suffered a permanent injury that prevents them from ever returning to their former work again.

The above examples are just a couple of example cases that the Law Office of Jack Stillman might represent. New Jersey workers who have suffered an injury and want to file a workers’ compensation claim may want to discuss their issue with a lawyer. At Law Office of Jack Stillman, we are available to speak with you about your potential benefits claim.
