More frequently, you may be able to pursue a personal injury claim against a third party responsible for your work injury, such as a negligent motorist or the manufacturer of defective tools or equipment you used at work. A personal injury claim might entitle you to recover damages, including those unavailable through workers’ comp, such as:

Workers’ compensation benefits are only available to workers who qualify as employees under New Jersey law. If you have been properly classified as an independent contractor, you may not recover workers’ compensation benefits from the construction company you perform work for. However, you may have been improperly classified as an independent contractor; our experienced work injury attorneys can review your case to determine whether you qualify as an employee and are eligible for workers’ comp benefits.
The workers’ compensation system in New Jersey generally does not permit you to file a personal injury lawsuit against your employer; you may only submit a claim for workers’ comp benefits to your employer. However, if your work injury was caused by a third party — for example, if you were injured by a negligent driver or by defective tools — you may be entitled to pursue a personal injury claim against that third party in addition to seeking workers’ comp benefits from your employer for your work claim.
