Common Work Injuries

No matter what industry you work in, there are health and safety risks you face. You may think working in an office is entirely safe. However, you could develop carpal tunnel or another injury over a period of time. However, you also face a much higher risk of injury when you work in more physical and rough industries. Many work injuries are related to:

  • Construction- As a construction worker, you face injuries from the vehicles and machinery you work with. If you were injured while on the clock, contact a lawyer immediately.
  • Transportation- A significant percentage of work-related injuries arise due to auto accidents. Whether you were in a car accident in your work vehicle while on duty, or you were struck by a vehicle while working, an attorney can help you recover the compensation you deserve.
  • Heavy equipment and machinery- Many industries require tools, heavy equipment, and significantly large machinery to perform certain work duties. Using these items comes with a myriad of risks, including entanglement, electric shock or electrocution, and much more. After an equipment or machinery accident, a lawyer will protect your rights and explain your legal options to recover compensation.

Some of the most common work-related injuries are:

  • Muscles strains and tears
  • Repetitive motion injuries
  • Back and shoulder injuries
  • Broken bones
  • Lacerations
  • Traumatic brain injuries, including concussions
  • Spinal cord injuries
  • Amputations
  • Burns
  • Chemical burns
  • Smoke or fume inhalation

Pursuing Compensation for a Work Injury

Following a workplace accident and/or injury, there are two main avenues for obtaining compensation. The first is workers’ compensation insurance. If you are covered by workers’ comp through your employer, then this may be your primary focus. You will need to file a workers’ compensation claim and work with your employer and their insurance provider to receive proper medical care and workers’ comp benefits. These benefits may include temporary or permanent compensation, or partial or full disability compensation. These means of compensation will help replace a portion of your lost wages for a period of time.

The second route toward obtaining compensation is through a third-party liability claim. This is typically not an appropriate claim to bring against your employer when you have workers’ compensation insurance. However, a third-party claim is fitting for many other circumstances, including when:

  • Your employer is liable for your injuries but does not carry workers’ compensation insurance.
  • Your employer is liable for your injuries, but you are an independent contractor and not covered by workers’ comp insurance.
  • You were injured by an individual outside of your company.

If your employer or a co-worker was careless and caused the accident that led to your injuries and workers’ comp is not available, then you may need to file a lawsuit against your employer to recover the compensation you deserve. If an employee of another business or a pedestrian caused the accident and your injuries, then you may need to sue that other company or individual.

How We Can Help With Your Third-Party Liability Claim

If you believe you have a valid third-party liability claim after a workplace accident, contact a Jersey City work injury lawyer at Bhatt Law Group right away. Third-party claims are not always appropriate in relation to work injuries. In other situations, however, filing one may be your best chance at recovering compensation.

The first way in which we will help you after an accident at your workplace is by determining who caused the accident and who is legally liable for your injuries. Knowing why the accident took place is essential. We will determine what went wrong and who is responsible. Once we know who caused your accident, we can then determine who is legally liable. Who caused your accident and who is liable may not be the same person. If your co-worker was at fault for the accident, your employer is most likely liable. If an employee from another company working on the same site was responsible, then their employer is more than likely liable. If an independent individual caused you harm, then you may file a lawsuit against that person.

After determining liability, we will help you calculate your damages. During a personal injury claim, regardless of whether it’s related to work or not, you may have the right to pursue compensation for:

  • Medical expenses
  • Loss of income
  • Pain and suffering
  • Disability
  • Disfigurement
  • Mental anguish
  • Loss of consortium

Some of these injuries are easily calculated based on paperwork, such as your medical bills and previous paychecks. Other damages are physical or psychological injuries that must be translated into a monetary value. At Bhatt Law Group, we understand the various methods used to translate non-economic damages into a sum. We will explain which of these methods is most appropriate for your situation, and we will determine the value of all of your financial, physical, and emotional injuries.

Alright! These guys are amazing. I was devastated when I got a three tickets in New Jersey with 12 points in total and fines adding up over $1K. The officer was truly rude, unfair and just took out his bad day on me. At this point I had no idea what to do but I must find some legal help to fight this in court. After getting the tickets, I called a bunch of different law groups trying to see who can help me with this. I was able to talk to many of them and mostly all of them seemed like they wanted to see how much they can get out of me before even hearing out what my concerns where. Then I got around to calling Bhatt Law Group and I was welcome by this lady (whose name I don't know) and she was amazing. She listened and helped me be calm and gave me assurance I am in good hands. She offer pricing and it seemed very reasonable too. I made my payment and then I didn't have anything to worry about till the day of the virtual court. They figured out all my court dates and managed everything on the back end. They would give me updates on what the process is up to. Funny story, on the day of my virtual court session I overslept thinking my court time was at 11 am instead of 9 am and I had my attorney Devin Baer even giving me a call to get me out of bed to attend the zoom. I don't know how many attorneys would do that for their client. Devin was very helpful, professional and understanding. He gave me a call prior to my court session and gave important pointers and even through out the court session he made me feel confident and assure that everything will be okay. So these guys were friendly, helpful and professional but where there any results? OH YEAH! I was able to lower my fines and points to barely nothing. These guys are life savers and will help you legally in any situation where you have been treated unfairly. Thank you Bhatt Law.
