New Jersey Workplace Injuries Attorney
Providing comprehensive and tenacious advocacy when you need it most
On the job accidents often cause serious and potentially life-threatening injuries for workers. Each year, there are millions of nonfatal injuries reported and roughly 4,500 work-related deaths. These types of cases are inherently emotional for both the victims and their families and have the potential to negatively impact both your professional and personal life for years to come. At Lomurro Law, our primary goal is to help injured victims obtain maximum compensation for their injuries so that they can move on with their lives in the best possible position. Collectively, we have more than 130 years of combined experience successfully tackling even the most challenging cases.
Common work-related accidents have the potential to lead to catastrophic injuries
When you report to work, you are entitled to do your job in a safe environment free from unreasonable hazards and dangerous conditions. Unfortunately, accidents happen in nearly all industries even the most seemingly mundane. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports that in 2014 the incidence rate of nonfatal work-related accidents and illnesses was 107.1 cases per 10,000 full-time workers. The most common types of on the job injuries include:
- Fractures and contusions due to slips, trips and falls
- Muscle strains, sprains and tears from heavy lifting
- Neck and spinal cord injuries
- Getting stuck or entangled in heavy equipment or machinery
- Chemical or thermal burns
- Amputations and loss of extremities
If you suffer any type of injury while at work, you must report it to your employer as soon as possible. Failing to properly report and document your injuries may result in delayed or denied workers’ compensation claims.
Full service legal representation for workers in all types of industries
Workers’ compensation cases result from all kinds of accidents in a variety of occupations. The most common industries that lead to the greatest number of on the job accidents include:
