Handling a Wide Range of Workplace Accident Claims in New Jersey

Our workers' compensation lawyers are ready to help those who have been injured while performing a variety of jobs in our state. Some of the claims we handle involve:

  • Accidents at construction sites, including falls from heights and falling debris

  • OSHA violations

  • Injuries to firefighters, police officers and corrections officers

You May Be Entitled to More Than Workers' Compensation Provides

Many people assume that if they are hurt at work, then workers' comp is the only potential source of compensation. Often, that is not the case.

If your accident was the result of negligence on the part of someone other than your employer or a co-worker, you may seek additional compensation through a personal injury claim. This known as third-party liability. If the third-party claim is successful, you can receive compensation for pain, suffering and emotional distress — none of which are provided for in the workers' compensation system. There are many examples of potential third-party liability, such as a lawsuit against the company that manufactured defective scaffolding or the repair shop that failed to perform proper repairs on the vehicle you use for your job.

Starr, Gern, Davison & Rubin, P.C., will explore all potential sources of liability in order to maximize the compensation you receive following a workplace accident.
