Hackensack Workers’ Compensation Lawyer
Hackensack Workers’ Compensation Court for Injured Employees in Bergen County, NJ
Workers’ Compensation bars injured workers from suing their employers. In exchange for the injured worker forgoing their right to file a personal injury claim against their employer, NJ Workers’ Compensation law provides the injured worker with a right to seek benefits regardless of whether the employer, or anyone else, was at fault for the accident that caused the injury. That’s because New Jersey is a no-fault state for Workers’ Compensation. Unfortunately, employers and their insurance providers still find ways to avoid paying benefits to injured employees.
