Injured on the Job at Teterboro Airport – Your Workers’ Compensation Rights
If you suffer an injury while working at the Teterboro Airport, speak to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. This may include being involved in a jet fuel fire, developing a vibration-related injury, a ramp accident, over-exposure to X-rays while screening luggage or another work-related injury. These injuries can take a long time to heal without treatment, so it is crucial to have legal representation to protect your rights.
Third Party Lawsuits
If an injury you sustained at work involves a third party, and they were deemed to be at fault for your accident at work, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the negligent party or parties.
If a non-employer is responsible for causing your accident, the workers’ compensation claim is not administered by New Jersey’s workers’ compensation rules. Workers’ compensation benefits aim to help injured workers return to work as soon as possible.
Examples of negligent third party lawsuits involving your work injury accident include:
- Equipment manufacturers
- Independent contractors/sub-contractors
- Property management companies/property owners
- Another driver or drivers of a truck or car
- Outside vendors, such as snow/ice removal companies
Filing for workers’ compensation benefits can be confusing, so speak to an experienced New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyer as soon as possible after your accident. It ensures you are treated fairly and that your rights are protected.
In New Jersey, you are entitled to file a personal injury lawsuit against the at-fault party who caused your accident and/or the airport. When an accident happens at an airport, and it is caused by the negligent actions of airport staff or management, the airport is often held responsible as well as the other parties. Each case is different, and your attorney will examine the details. You also have rights if you were injured on the job.
