I am a NJ resident and slipped and fell at work. Do I have a case?

A: Under New Jersey law, those injured at work can make two kinds of claims:

1. workers’ compensation claims, and

2. third party claims against non-employer parties.

Workers’ compensation claims can be made regardless of whose fault the accident was. However, third party claims may be made where another party’s negligence caused the accident. In many workplace accident situations, other parties are hired to handle maintenance. Each case is unique and so it is important to discuss the case with an experienced New Jersey workers’ compensation and workplace accident lawyer.
