Passaic County Workers' Compensation Attorney

When hurt at work, many employees fear that they should not report the accident or the injury. They are concerned about being fired or reprimanded following the accident. By filing a workers' compensation claim, you are simply documenting an accident and the resultant injury.

Contact Passaic County workers' compensation lawyer Tiffany Glenn Burress if you have questions regarding a workplace injury or you have been denied workers' compensation benefits following an accident. We will carefully investigate your situation and represent you through all stages of filing and appeals to ensure you receive the proper compensation in your situation.

Hackensack Workplace Injury Attorney

Injuries commonly happen in one of two categories:

  • Specific instance: When an injury results from a specific instance or accident, it is easy to trace. In other words, when the injury results from a single accident — falling down the stairs or an object falling on your head — the workers' compensation claim follows a relatively straightforward path.
  • Repetitive stress: A bit more difficult to prove, a repetitive stress injury is caused by performing the same motion or task over and over again over the course of your career. Moving heavy boxes, bending and lifting can all be related to a repetitive stress injury. Carpal tunnel, most often caused by typing, is perhaps the most well-known of all the repetitive stress injuries.

If you have been hurt at work, there is no question of liability. Workers' compensation claims simply assert that you were hurt while performing job tasks. If you have questions about workers' compensation, or you have been denied your benefits, contact a skilled Hackensack injury attorney as soon as possible.

Third-Party Liability

Often, an injury on a work site is caused by an outside source. These sources can include delivery drivers, independent contractors or even the company that manufactured a defective product. In these situations, it is possible to claim third-party liability over and above any workers' compensation. A knowledgeable New Jersey lawyer can explain the legal process to you.
