Woodbridge Workers' Compensation Lawyers
Protecting Your Rights After a Workplace Accident
If you are injured on the job in New Jersey, you are entitled to workers' compensation benefits regardless of who was at fault. However, workers' compensation benefits are limited and do not pay you for everything you have lost, including pain and suffering. If your injury was caused by the negligence of what is known as a "third party," you may be entitled to seek additional compensation with the help of our legal team. At Palmisano & Goodman, P.A., our Woodbridge workers' compensation lawyers represent workers who are injured on the job.
What Is a Third-Party Claim?
In exchange for providing workers' compensation benefits, employers in New Jersey are generally protected from employee lawsuits for injuries that occur on the job, except in cases of extreme negligence. However, third parties are not protected from personal injury claims, which our team can help you file.
Third parties may include anyone who does not work for your employer, including:
- Manufacturers of unsafe equipment
- Other drivers in car accidents
- Subcontractors and vendors
- Property owners
Experienced Woodbridge Work Injury Attorney
If your injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party, our lawyers may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the third party. Doing so would allow us to seek compensation for damages not covered by workers' compensation. This is very important in cases where your injuries were severe and where you are not able to return to work due to the severity of the accident.
A few examples of compensation we may be able to recover in a third party claim include:
- Pain and suffering
- Loss of enjoyment of life
- Emotional trauma
- Full wage replacement
