Will we all be temporary workers one day?

Temporary workers face a greater risk of death and injury according to an investigation by ProPublica, that reviewed millions of workers' compensation claims made in five states. The study found that workers in some states faced up to a 72 percent greater chance of being injured on the job.

Barge accident requires rescue team response on Passaic

Bad weather can wreak havoc on practically all workers. From office workers waiting for delayed mass transit to snow plow drivers attempting to keep the roads clear during a winter storm, virtually everyone experiences difficulties caused by weather.

Reckless driving not intentional enough

For most injured workers in New Jersey, the workers' compensation system represents their exclusive remedy. They cannot sue their employer for a personal injury in a negligence action. They also are prohibited from suing a fellow employee for negligence. But what if the injury was caused by something beyond negligence? 

New Jersey roofer charged with workers' compensation fraud

When we hear about workers' compensation fraud, we typically think of the occasional worker who "fakes" an injury and obtains workers' compensation benefits or has recovered from his or her injuries but pretends to still be injured, in order to continue receiving benefits.

Late with your claim? Too bad, so sad, says New Jersey

In the legal system, there are many deadlines. Some are known as jurisdictional deadlines. What this means is that if you fail to meet the deadline for whatever reason, your claim is dead. Forever. Workers' compensation insurance has similar deadlines. In New Jersey, you have 90 days after the occurrence of an injury to file a workers' compensation claim and provide notice to your employer.

Construction worker drowns in pipe during downpour

Construction work can present numerous dangers and risk to workers' lives.

NJ survivors to get lifetime workers' compensation benefits

A few weeks ago, we discussed a workers' compensation bill that was being considered by the legislature. That bill, S-1469 would allow the surviving spouses of firefighters and police officers who had died in the line of duty to receive workers' compensation, even after they had remarried. Some communities were concerned that the bill could cost them a great deal of additional resources to provide the expanded workers' compensation benefits to these spouses.

Texas fertilizer plant explodes killing 14, injuring 160

News concerning workers and accidents don't generate much interest in the news media, or from politicians. Last week's coverage of the explosion of the fertilizer factory in West, Texas is a good example. While the major networks were literally all atwitter over the manhunt to capture the Boston Marathon Bombers, the town of West was blown apart by the explosion of products on the site of the West Fertilizer Factory.
