Navigating the Aftermath: Walmart Work Accidents and the Toll on Income and Health
According to New Jersey law, employers are mandated to either have workers’ compensation coverage or to be self-insured, underscoring the importance of safeguarding the interests of their employees. In the unfortunate occurrence of work-related injuries or fatalities during service at Walmart, the onus of responsibility extends to the employer and company officials. Their liability encompasses a spectrum of potential ramifications, ranging from medical expenses to temporary, partial, or permanent disability benefits, as well as dependency benefits. The outcome is contingent on the specific circumstances of the accident, highlighting the nuanced nature of each case.
Civil penalties exist in New Jersey for company officers and employers if they do not maintain workers’ compensation insurance. Penalties or awards from a workers’ compensation claim may become liens against the uninsured employer and its officers.
