New Jersey Workers’ Compensation vs. Third-Party Liability in Construction Accident Cases

When you get hurt at work in New Jersey, workers’ compensation laws generally prevent you from suing your employer. Because employers are legally required to provide you with workers’ compensation insurance benefits, those benefits stand in place of a personal injury recovery.  Workers’ compensation provides benefits such as:

When you are hurt at work and file for workers’ compensation benefits, you get benefits that equal about 70 percent of your average weekly pay.  While this, in addition to your medical bills, is helpful, it may not be sufficient to even pay your living expenses.

While you can’t sue for additional benefits, you might be able to get additional compensation from a non-employer responsible for the accident.  In many cases, a third party, such as a cleaning company or the manufacturer of a faulty piece of equipment, whose negligence caused the construction accident, can be held liable for your injuries.

Through the third party claims process, a New Jersey construction accident lawyer from our firm can advocate on your behalf to get compensation for:

There is a two-year statute of limitations on filing for a third-party claim for compensation after your construction accident.

Frequently Asked Questions About New Jersey Construction Accident Claims

I’m collecting workers’ compensation benefits for my injury. Can I pursue a third-party claim against someone else who was responsible for the construction accident?

Yes, if a non-employer’s negligence caused the accident. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, meaning that you get benefits regardless of whether your employer caused the accident. Third parties aren’t protected from liability under this system. In some cases, you may be required to reimburse workers’ compensation for the benefits they have already paid you out of your third-party settlement award. This basically means that you can’t be compensated for the same expenses twice.

What are permanent disability benefits? Can I receive permanent disability after a construction accident?

Regular, or temporary, workers’ compensation benefits are available for a set period of time or the time when you’ve reached “maximum medical improvement”. Some construction accidents cause serious injuries from which you’ll never fully recover. When you’ve recovered to the extent possible, permanent disability benefits may be available. After 450 weeks of temporary benefits, it’s necessary to prove that you’ve been through rehab and still can’t work. Permanent disability benefits might then be available.
