Injured on the Job? Let Us Fight for the Benefits You Deserve
At The Law Offices of Lloyd E. Bennett, Esq., P.C., we understand that there are few things more difficult to experience than a workplace injury. No matter whether you were injured while falling, if you were hurt by the malfunctioning of your equipment, or if you were involved in a vehicle accident of some kind, the injuries that you sustain can be catastrophic.
Rarely are work-related injuries minor bumps and bruises. All too often, they will leave you not only in pain, but also facing rising medical bills while leaving you unable to work. It can be a tough, or even impossible, situation to face. Thankfully, you don't have to face it alone.
For this reason, the workers’ compensation system exists. Under this law, you are afforded the right to pursue benefits to cover items such as medical costs, missed time at work, out-of-pocket expenses for prescriptions, and more. If you suffer a permanent injury, the benefits can be used to cover that, as well.
Examples of Injuries from Workplace Accidents
It’s up to owners and those in supervisory positions to establish and maintain a safe work environment. Too often, they fail to do this, improperly training their staff, neglecting necessary maintenance of equipment, failing to warn of hazards, or other mistakes, and unfortunately, unsuspecting employees are seriously injured.
Although there are countless types of injuries you may suffer at work, some common examples include:
- Burn Injuries
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Dental, Eye & Ear Injuries
- Fractures & Broken Bones
- Head, Neck & Back Injuries
- Leg, Knee & Foot Injuries
- Repetitive Stress Injuries
- Shoulder, Arm & Hand Injuries
- Spinal Cord Injuries
- Sprains & Strains
- Traumatic Brain Injury

Q:Do I need a workers’ compensation attorney for my injury case?
A:Yes, you need an attorney. If you’re visiting this site, have questions about your rights, and have been injured in a work-related accident, you may be entitled to collect money by filing a formal claim with the NJ Workers’ Compensation Courts. Only a NJ licensed lawyer can file a formal claim. If you do not file the formal claim, you will not collect what you are entitled to, and your rights to medical treatment may be affected.
Q:Will I lose my job if I file a formal claim with an attorney?
A:No, it is against the law for an employer to discriminate against them for filing a workers’ compensation claim in NJ. If you are fired for filing a claim, you must speak to a workers’ compensation attorney immediately to protect your rights.
Q:What should I do if I have been injured while working in New Jersey?
A:Notify your employer immediately. Speak with your supervisor or someone else of authority at your work. Notifications do not have to be in writing—however, it may benefit you to have evidence that you notified your employer. If you intend to seek medical treatment for your injuries, this should be requested through your employer as well.
