Will I get reimbursed for lost wages after a work injury?

Being injured at work can lead to many problems, physically, financially and emotionally. Not only will you probably experience a significant amount of pain and suffering during your path to recovery, but you'll also need to pay for medical services, and you'll need to take time off work while you heal. Worrying about money can also lead those injured to deal with stress and anxiety.

Understanding workers' compensation laws in New Jersey

While workers' compensation is in place across the United States, all individual states have slightly differing laws. Therefore, it is important that you fully understand the laws that apply to the state in which you work. For example, if you live in New York but you are employed in New Jersey, your focus will be on New Jersey laws.

What are the priorities after a workplace injury?

Many jobs have a lot more risks inherent than others. For example, someone is more likely to be injured on the road than in an office under most circumstances, so professional drivers may face more occupational risks than office workers. As a result, some employees may know more about what to do if they are hurt on the job. If you're uncertain about what to do after a workplace injury, here are some answers to frequently asked questions.

How to report a workplace injury to your employer

Even though you do your best to protect against a workplace injury, you never know what could go wrong in the future. You could fall down the stairs as the result of a loose railing, trip and fall on a construction site or develop carpal tunnel syndrome.

How to work safely outdoors during the hot summer months

If your job responsibilities require you to work outdoors during the hot summer months, it's imperative to take steps to protect your health. Neglecting to do so can result in serious harm, including but not limited to dehydration and heat stroke.

What are the top causes of workplace ladder accidents?

When working on a ladder on a job site, it's critical that you take steps to maintain a high level of safety. Don't assume that just because you have experience using a ladder that you'll never be injured in an accident. It's this line of thinking that increases the risk of trouble.

Are you protecting against these workplace injuries?

Regardless of your job responsibilities or the environment in which you work, there's always a possibility you could suffer an injury. If this happens, it's critical to receive treatment, report the incident to your employer and learn more about your legal rights.
