Work Injury Lawsuits
Available 24 Hours a Day. 7 Days a Week
Working in a job allows you to earn a living for yourself and your loved ones and to help provide fulfillment and structure in your life. But you may never stop to think about the possibility that you could suffer a serious, debilitating injury on the job. A work injury can indefinitely eliminate your ability to provide for yourself and your family and require you to face weeks or even months of physical and emotional recovery from your injury. Fortunately, the law requires that employees who suffer a work injury receive benefits to help facilitate their recovery. But just because the law may entitle you to certain benefits or compensation does not mean that the process of getting those benefits is easy. If you’ve suffered a work injury, the New Jersey work injury lawsuit attorneys of Bramnick, Rodriguez, Grabas, Arnold & Mangan, LLC can help you pursue the financial compensation you deserve through workers’ compensation or from those at fault for your injury.
For over 35 years, our New Jersey work injury attorneys have helped numerous clients successfully hold employers responsible to provide the workers’ compensation benefits required by law, and hold negligent third-parties accountable for causing a work injury.

When you sustain a work injury, the law in New Jersey allows you to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits with your employer. In most cases, workers’ compensation is the only legal claim you may bring against your employer; employers are normally immune from personal injury lawsuits for work injuries.
Depending on the extent of your injuries and whether and how long they keep you out of work, your employer (or more frequently, your employer’s workers’ compensation insurer) will provide you with certain workers’ compensation benefits, such as:

When your work injury is caused by someone outside of your work, you may be entitled to also pursue a third-party injury claim. For example, you can pursue a claim against a negligent motorist who hits you while you are on the job. Compensation in a third-party work injury claim can provide financial recovery beyond that afforded through workers’ compensation, including:

While workers’ compensation is generally an injured employee’s exclusive remedy against their employer for a work injury, when a work injury is caused by a third party, such as by a negligent motorist or a defective tool or piece of equipment, an injured worker may also be entitled to pursue an injury claim against that third party in addition to a claim for workers’ compensation benefits from the worker’s employer.
If you receive workers’ compensation benefits for a work injury and then win a third-party injury claim or lawsuit, your employer (or its workers’ compensation insurer) may be entitled to seek reimbursement for workers’ compensation benefits it paid to you out of the recovery you obtained in your third-party injury claim, since the third-party is most responsible for having caused your work injury and the law does not allow you to obtain a “double recovery” for an injury.
