Jersey City Work Injury Attorneys
If you have suffered a serious work-related injury, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation benefits. Almost all employers must, by law, carry workman’s comp insurance; among the few exceptions are very small companies. Workers’ compensation should give you lost wages compensation and pay your medical bills.

What You Should Know About Workers’ Compensation in New Jersey
Any disabled worker filing for workers’ compensation benefits should understand their legal rights:
- Workers’ compensation does not only cover work accidents. It also covers repetitive strain injuries such as back injuries or carpal tunnel syndrome.
- You cannot be punished for filing for workman’s comp benefits. Any attempt to fire you, for example, can be grounds for a wrongful termination lawsuit. Your employer cannot punish you or terminate you simply because you have filed a workers compensation claim.
