Employers have a legal duty to provide a safe working environment for all employees. They are responsible for safety with regard to work conditions, processes, plants, or machinery used in the operation of their business. Unfortunately, no matter how many precautions exist, accidents are a part of life. Workplace accidents can happen because of machine malfunction, human error, or other unforeseen circumstances. Some accidents are reasonably foreseeable and they must be factored into workplace safety measures to prevent accidents.

When a worker is injured on the job, they should not be financially responsible for medical treatment and lost wages associated with the injury. In New Jersey, the workers’ compensation system exists to help injured workers get the medical care they need and offset the impact of missing time at work. If you’ve sustained a personal injury from a workplace incident, the New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers from Nitti & Nitti can help you get the compensation you deserve.

What is Workers’ Compensation?

Generally, when a person is injured due to the negligence of another party who owes him a duty of care, the negligent party is financially responsible for the injuries they cause. In the workplace, employers must cover necessary medical expenses and lost wages incurred by workers seriously injured while on the job.

In New Jersey, every employer is required to make sufficient provision for the payment of any liability they may incur as a result of a worker’s injuries. Businesses with one or more employees must carry workers’ compensation insurance for this purpose.

Workers’ compensation insurance only covers economic losses such as medical expenses and lost wages of workers injured in the workplace. It also covers death benefits if an employee dies as a result of work-related injuries. Workers’ compensation does not cover non-economic losses such as pain, suffering, and inconvenience.

My Employer is Denying My Workplace Injury Claim, What Can I Do?

Although an employer is liable to an employee for any injuries sustained in the course of their work, an injured employee bears the burden of proving that their injury was caused by a work-related incident.

An employer may deny your workers’ compensation claims by arguing that your injury was not caused by a work-related incident. Your claims could also be limited if the workplace insurance carrier decides that some of your medical expenses are unnecessary. In such instances, you may need to sue your employer, and you will need legal and medical experts to help you prove your claims. A knowledgeable New Jersey workers’ compensation attorney will have access to the resources required to support you in your fight to get the compensation that you deserve.
