Work-Related Car And Truck Accidents In Ocean County
Work-related car and truck accidents, or accidents involving other job-related machinery, can leave workers with severe, even life-threatening, injuries. While healing, many are forced to take time off. Missed shifts mean lost wages. Many injured workers worry about how they will pay for medical treatment and keep up with the daily costs of living without a paycheck.
At Toms River-based Silvi, Fedele & Honschke Attorneys at Law, L.L.C., we help injured workers in Ocean County, Monmouth County and throughout New Jersey get the workers’ compensation benefits they need to treat their injuries, pay their bills and support their families.
Accidents Involving Work Vehicles
Motor vehicle accidents often leave their victims with serious physical injuries. When accidents involve work vehicles or occur while workers are performing job-related duties, workers’ compensation benefits may be available.
In New Jersey, injured workers are entitled to medical benefits and a portion of their lost wages.
If a work-related car or truck accident has forced you off the job, you need your workers’ comp benefits now. At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke, our law firm has been helping our clients maximize their workers’ comp benefits since 1986. We understand the financial strain that can result when a work accident leaves our clients unable to work. We do everything in our power to guide our clients through the workers’ compensation process as efficiently as possible.
You May Have A Personal Injury Claim On Top Of Workers’ Comp Benefits
Many people believe workers’ compensation is their only source of compensation. This may not be the case. If your work vehicle was in an accident with a third party – someone other than your employer or a co-worker, such as a contractor – you may have a personal injury claim. This personal injury claim will allow you to pursue compensation above and beyond your workers’ compensation benefits.
At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke, our lawyers thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident. If a third party was involved, we pursue both workers’ comp and personal injury claims that maximize our clients’ compensation.
