Workers’ Compensation

Unfortunately, accidents in the workplace are too common. The conditions at your workplace and what industry you work in to determine what risks you face. Some industries are more dangerous than others, such as construction, where many workers are injured every year. Accidents in the workplace include:

  • Electrocution
  • Getting stuck in or between objects
  • Falls
  • Overexertion
  • Entanglement in gears or other parts of machinery
  • Being struck by large objects

Accidents can also be a result of inadequate training. If you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, contact a Newark personal injury attorney and look into the possibility of making a workers’ compensation claim.

Common Personal Injuries

Unfortunately, personal injury attorneys see examples of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

in all types of injuries, whether they are caused by a car accident or a slip-and-fall. TBI occurs when there has been a forceful blow to the head from the impact of a car crash or a fall down a slippery walkway. Other injuries that our Newark personal injury attorneys handle include:

  • Whiplash
  • Scrapes, cuts, and bruises
  • Broken bones
  • Broken ribs
  • Internal bleeding

Injuries to the spine or spinal cord after an accident are also common and can affect a person’s ability to take care of themselves. A victim can become partially or fully paralyzed, either for life or temporarily. In addition to the medical care they require, they often also need home care to take care of daily tasks.

Fractures are some of the most common injuries associated with car accidents, slips, and trips, followed by hip fractures and sprains. If you have been injured in any way, contact our Newark NJ personal injury practice for a free consultation.

Pain And Suffering

In addition to these physical injuries, the law recognizes the person’s value as a whole and damages such as pain and suffering. Being injured changes a person’s life irrevocably. In a wrongful death case, a loved one has died due to another’s reckless or negligent behavior. Unfortunately, car accidents caused by reckless or negligent drivers have ended careers, permanently disfigured victims, and devastated families. That’s why our Newark NJ personal injury attorneys at Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP fight damages related to:

  • Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)
  • Physical impairment
  • Shock
  • Damages to a person's dignity or self-respect
  • Mortification
  • Grief, such as in the wrongful death of a loved one
  • Loss of companionship
  • Emotional distress

You can use medical records, prescription records if you are being prescribed pain relief medication, and testimonies from expert witnesses in the medical field. You want to speak with an attorney about your ability to pursue damages for pain and suffering through personal injury law.

Awards & Recognitions

Why You Need an Attorney Representing Injury Victims

Your claim’s success hinges on your case’s strength and the amount of preparation that went into it. Remember that the insurance company will have their own attorneys, and may have even graduated from good law schools. It is very difficult for the average person to negotiate the best settlement possible against someone with far more knowledge about Newark New Jersey law. And the attorneys from the insurance company will know that you are no match for them and may even try to take advantage of you because of that. But when you hire an experienced and respected personal injury lawyer, they know that they are up against an attorney who fights aggressively for their clients.

Frequently Asked Questions

While we strive to answer as many common questions as possible, the best way for you to get the answers you need is to call our office directly to schedule your free case evaluation. Your personal injury attorney will work with you to get the compensation you deserve. 

A statute of limitation is a legal time limit on your right to file a personal injury lawsuit. In the state of New Jersey, the statute of limitations is two years from the date of the accident. If you miss the filing deadline and try to file your personal injury lawsuit anyway, then the defendant can file a motion to dismiss your claim, which will do you no good and will waste your time. Instead, call a personal injury lawyer today.
Personal injury cases start the moment the crash happens, so it’s important to take the correct next steps. After an accident, you should immediately check on the other passengers in your vehicle, the other driver, passengers in their vehicle, and anyone else involved, such as pedestrians.  Dial 911 and inform the dispatcher whether or not you need medical assistance. Even if you do not initially believe that you were hurt in the accident, you should still seek medical attention because the shock of the crash could cause an adrenaline spike that would allay symptoms of injury. Do not offer additional information than what you need to provide to the other driver and law enforcement, or speculate about the cause of the accident. Even if you believe that you caused the accident, do not apologize or accept responsibility. You do not have all of the facts, nor do you want to jeopardize your investigation or claim before it’s even had a chance to be reviewed by a skilled personal injury law professional. You are required by law to exchange the following information:  
  • Your name
  • Address
  • Phone number
  • Email address
  • Auto insurance policy information
  • If the other driver requested, you must provide them your driver's license
There are many factors that affect your personal injury case. One of them is what you say to the officer, other driver, or to the insurance company. If they can use anything that you said to lower your settlement, then they will try. Next, it will matter what you did immediately after the accident. If you waited a while to seek medical attention, then the insurance company might argue that the injury was caused by another party or was not actually severe enough to need relief. But the truth is, after an accident, the shock can mask a lot of symptoms as adrenaline keeps the body alert and functioning. So if you waited to see the doctor, then that can affect your case. While there is no way to find out exactly how your settlement will be calculated, there is a general formula. What the insurance companies typically do is add up all of the economic damages – those include things such as your medical bills, lost wages, and damaged property – and calculate them against a multiplier between 1.5 and five. The multiplier they use is dependent upon how serious the accident was. If a person was injured in a car accident and suffered significant injuries as well as lost time at work, then their multiplier will be closer to five. In cases of wrongful death when a loved one is killed in a car accident, the multiplier can be as high as 10. The personal injury attorneys at Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP can give you a better idea of your estimated settlement. Give us a call today.
There are some situations in which Worker’s Compensation laws do not protect. They include instances when employees show up to work intoxicated, intentionally start fights with other employees or hurt themselves intentionally.
Employees do not pay for the Workers’ Compensation party coverage they benefit from it. Businesses purchase Workers’ Compensation insurance. However, the company you are receiving your Worker’s Compensation benefits from may not be your employer. Instead, it may be a state agency, insurance company, or third-party administrator you got your employer hired to minister your claim. Call Goldstein & Goldstein, LLP for a free case evaluation today.
Because slip-and-fall accidents can require multiple surgeries as well as extensive follow-up medical care and modifications to your home as a result of your disability, all of these can be covered in your settlement when you choose an aggressive attorney who fights for you.
