Target Workers Compensation New Jersey Attorneys

New Jersey Law Applicable to Target Workplace Accidents

Under New Jersey law, employers not encompassed by federal programs are obligated to possess workers’ compensation coverage or be self-insured. This mandate is designed to uphold the protection and rights of workers in case of untoward incidents.

Should work-related injuries or fatalities transpire within the work setting, the onus of accountability extends to both the employer and other pertinent company officials. Their liability encompasses a broad spectrum, encompassing medical expenses, permanent or temporary disability, and dependency benefits. 

New Jersey’s legal system is steadfast in ensuring adherence to workers’ compensation regulations. Severe civil penalties await company officers and employers who neglect to uphold this pivotal insurance. The repercussions of this negligence extend beyond mere monetary fines. Penalties or awards stemming from a workers’ compensation claim can evolve into liens, possessing the potential to significantly impact both the uninsured employer and the company officers involved.

Common Work Injuries NJ Target Store Associates and Supervisors May Face 

Although Target offers various job positions, any employee can obtain the following injuries: 

These workplace activities involve force, repetition, and awkward postures. Three of the top ten causes of workplace injuries in stores such as Target include repetitive motion, bodily reaction, and overexertion.

Various Target Job Categories Susceptible to Workplace Injuries

Target employees may be hired to work in one of the following positions:

  • Guest Advocate (Cashier)
  • Forklift Driver
  • Guest Associate
  • Food & Beverage Team Member
  • Maintenance Team Member
  • Specialty Sales 
  • General Merchandise Team Leader
  • Overnight Stockers
  • Security Specialist 

Regardless of what each position’s duties entail, anyone can suffer from a serious work accident. It only takes one moment of inattention for an accident to happen. A power equipment operator may come into contact with the machine or run into something. Staff who cut produce for consumption can lose a finger or sustain a serious cut if their hand slips. A receiving clerk could dislocate their shoulder or slip, trip, and fall in the loading dock area.

Injuries Sustained at Work at Target

If you have been in an accident while working at Target, you are entitled to file for Workers’ Compensation benefits. All employers in New Jersey must provide workers’ compensation.

Creating a paper trail from the start is crucial. This includes obtaining copies of medical treatments received, tests ordered, drugs prescribed, and communication with your employer and doctors. This provides you with greater leverage later on should there be any questions about the claims process. 

We strongly advise getting in touch with us at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm to find out your legal rights as an injured Target worker. We will analyze your unique situation and create a plan of action. 

From Injury to Recovery: Unpacking the Process Post-Workplace Accident at Target

Filing a claim on your own can be confusing due to the complexity and range of forms. Your employer may try to get you back to work before you are healthy enough to do so or deny you benefits if they feel medical treatment is not necessary. Things are not always as straightforward as they may seem, as each case and situation is different and affects a worker differently.

Insurance companies tend to use the claims process to shortchange injured workers. They attempt to prove your injuries are not as serious as you claim they are, or they may argue that the injuries are not work-related. At the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm, our workers’ compensation lawyers will fight for your rights on your behalf so that you can focus on your recovery.
