Founding Partner, Todd J. Leonard, and his team of New Jersey Workers’ Compensation lawyers have been privileged to represent thousands of injured New Jersey workers for over 30 years. Our attorneys will fight for your rights, which includes getting the medical treatment you need, any wages you are legally owed, and compensation for your injuries. Additionally, our team of trial lawyers will be in contact with your employer’s insurance carrier to ensure you receive timely authorization for your medical treatment, and when you can return to work, if at all.
If you are seriously injured while working, you should immediately seek medical attention. Next, you should alert your employer as soon as possible. The workers’ compensation statute requires that an employee who is hurt on the job must report the injury to their employer.
If a third-party and/or outside contractor caused or contributed to your accident, you may also be able to bring a claim for your damages from that person or company as well. These cases are commonly known as third party claims and are often complex and require a thorough evaluation.
Many work-related injuries are attributed to construction site accidents, slip and fall accidents, truck accidents, and car accidents, which often involve a third party or outside contractor. Many injuries sustained while working at a warehouse often occur when lifting heavy objects, operating a forklift, or a crane, falling off a ladder, or slipping on a wet floor. If you are a making a delivery, workers can also get bitten by a dog while attempting to make a delivery, due to the dog not being properly secured by the owner.
It is important to retain an experienced New Jersey Injury attorney to evaluate your potential third party claim and hold those fully responsible for all of your injuries and losses.
