Many workers injured on the job in New Jersey are usually covered by Workers’ Compensation benefits. Workers’ Compensation benefits are enough to cover medical treatment and a portion of lost earnings, but injured workers are also entitled for compensation for their permanent injury or the death of your loved one. At Mandelbaum Barrett PC, our skilled personal injury attorneys have helped countless clients recover the compensation due to them after a workplace injury.

- If your employer failed to carry a Workers’ Compensation insurance, you may be able to sue your employer to collect damages for your injuries
- If your injury was caused by a defective product, you may have grounds to sue the manufacturer
- If exposure to toxic chemicals or illegal substances caused your injury
