New Jersey Delivery Driver Accident Lawyer

If you are a delivery driver employed by a company in New Jersey, you are entitled to workers’ compensation insurance benefits if you are injured on the job, and it is important to protect your rights.

Should you suffer a serious work injury while on your delivery driver job in New Jersey, you should speak to an experienced workers’ compensation attorney. This may include being involved in a car accident, a truck accident, a slip and fall accident, a dog bite attack, a warehouse accident, use of defective work equipment, or other work-related injury. Often, these injuries can take months (or even years) to heal without proper treatment, so it is important to have legal representation.

Third Party Lawsuits in New Jersey

If your work-related injury involved a third-party, and it is determined that they are at-fault for your accident at work, you may be able to file a lawsuit against this negligent party. In sum, if a non-employer is responsible for causing an accident, the claim is not administered by New Jersey’s workers’ compensation rules. Examples of a negligent third-party lawsuit involving your work accident may include:

• Another motorist, such as a car or truck that ran a stop sign or rear-ended your delivery vehicle
• Outside vendors, including snow/ice removal companies who fail to keep the premises safe
• Equipment manufacturers who created a defective product
• Independent contractors and sup-contractors who fail to keep the premises safe
• Property management companies/property owners who fail to monitor and supervise their contractors

Examples of Injuries Caused by a Third Party:

• Spinal cord injuries
• Neck and back injuries such as herniated discs
• Fractures
• Shoulder injuries
• Knee / ankle injuries
• Head / brain injuries
• Lacerations
• Amputations
• Nerve damage
• Soft tissue damage

In New Jersey, workers’ compensation benefits are designed to help injured workers recover physically and financially, and get back to work when they are able to.

Filing for workers’ compensation benefits can be complicated, so speaking to an experienced New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyer soon after your accident can ensure your rights are protected and you are treated fairly.
