I was injured in my Cherry Hill, NJ employer’s office. Do I have a case?

A:  New Jersey workers’ compensation law allows an injured worker to make a claim against an employer for certain  benefits, like lost wages and medical bills. However, pain and suffering damages are not paid by the employer pursuant to a workers’ compensation claim.

Instead, pain and suffering damages, in addition to lost wages and medical bills, may be recovered in third party lawsuits, or lawsuits against non-employer parties. For example, there may be a claim against a contractor or subcontractor. Every case varies and it is crucial to speak to a knowledgeable New Jersey workers’ compensation and workplace accident lawyer prior to making any decisions about your case.
