Workplace Accidents in New Jersey
Sussex County Workplace Accident Attorney
If you suffered a serious injury on the job, you cannot sue your employer. You may only seek workers' compensation benefits. However, if someone else (a third party) is responsible for your injury, you may be able to recover damage in addition to your workers' compensation claim.
I'm attorney Francis M. Smith. At my firm, the Law Office of Francis M. Smith, Esq. I provide clients with comprehensive representation designed to secure full and fair compensation for their workplace injuries. I represent injured workers throughout counties that include Sussex County, Union County, Morris County and Hunterdon County.
If you were injured at work because a third party was negligent (they did not use reasonable care to avoid your injury), contact me to schedule a free consultation. You will always receive personalized service from the moment you call 908-233-5800.
Thirty years of practicing personal injury law has allowed me to develop effective negotiation skills. In fact, my civil approach to negotiation has led to outstanding results: I am a lifetime member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, and my clients have recovered more than $33,000,000 since 1996.
I Will Guide You Through the Legal Process
I have practiced personal injury law for more than 30 years, and I know how to properly handle third party work injury cases. I can make this entire process easier for you.
I will start by gathering witness statements, examining the accident scene and identifying the liable third parties and their insurance carriers. I will then provide the necessary information and seek to negotiate a fair settlement. In the event these negotiations prove unproductive, I am readily able to pursue the matter in court.
Compensation After a Workplace Accident
I will fight to secure full compensation for the injuries you have suffered during the course of your employment, including (but certainly not limited to):
- Motor vehicle collisions, such as car accidents and truck accidents that occur while you are working
- Machine/equipment malfunctions and other defective products
- Slip and falls, including falls due to improper warning
- Construction accidents or other contract work, such as collapsed scaffolding, power tool accidents and ladder accidents
- Burns, shocks and exposure to toxins
You may be able to recover for pain and suffering, loss of earnings, and other damages for your job-related injuries. In addition, if your loved one was tragically killed while on the job, you can recover for loss of society and companionship.
