Injuries in the workplace can occur at any job, anywhere. Elizabeth's versatile business structure encompasses a wide breadth of work environments. Elizabeth's workplaces range from offices, manufacturing plants and malls to cargo terminals and recycling centers. Whether you're behind a machine or out in the field, you're susceptible to injury. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there are 109.4 cases of non-fatal workplace injuries per 10,000 workers. These injuries can result in both physical and emotional suffering and often impact future interactions in that workplace.
With years of case experience, we've helped countless workers in the Elizabeth area secure workers compensation settlements. Workplace injuries range in gravity and implication. Incidents eligible for workers comp are one-time accidents, long-term injuries, illnesses/diseases brought on by harmful exposures, and stress-induced illnesses. Workers compensation settlements also can include the agitation or worsening of pre-existing health issues. From broken bones and spinal injuries to concussions and emotional trauma, no case is too big or too small for our workers comp lawyers. Whether you're out of commission for a few days, a few weeks, or a few months, you deserve to be compensated accordingly.
Injuries qualifying for workers comp can be results of failed inspection, managerial negligence, or general disregard for safety.
