What If My Work Injury Was My Fault?

Many people mistakenly believe that if a work injury is their own fault they are not entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits.  This is simply not true.  Under New Jersey Workers’ Compensation law, you do not have to prove fault to be entitled to benefits as long as an injury or illness arose out of and in the course of your employment.  It should be noted that you are not entitled to benefits if your employer can show that you intentionally injured yourself.

Anytime your are injured at work, it is important to consult an attorney to learn your rights and responsibilities.  We are always available to help guide you through this process and we provide free, no-obligation consultations.

In most instances, in the aftermath of a work-related injury you have the right to seek monetary benefits under state workers’ compensation laws, so that you can recover lost wages and medical expenses.

Family Law & Divorce

We understand that family law matters can be highly emotional, and that different solutions work for different clients.

Many people have the idea that when we file a lawsuit, we are suing the person. We are not. We are suing the insurance company that the person has been paying to protect them against a loss like this. The insurance company that this person has been paying for quite some time.
