New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyer for Auto Mechanics

Leading Workers’ Compensation Lawyers Represent Injured Auto Mechanics Across New Jersey

Auto mechanics are at risk for a number of work injuries and illnesses.  While some of these may be sustained over time based on the nature of the work itself, most of these injuries are caused by a single work accident. New Jersey Workers’ Compensation gives every employee the right to medical benefits wage replacement while they recover, and a cash payment for any permanent loss of function of the injured body part—even if you yourself caused the accident and injury.

Frequently Asked Questions About Workers’ Compensation for Auto Mechanics

FAQ: Can I get Workers’ Compensation and pursue a lawsuit against someone who caused my work accident?

Sometimes. If you, your employer or a co-worker somehow caused your injury or illness, you can’t file a lawsuit, and Workers’ Compensation is your only option. However, if your boss sent out a piece of machinery to be repaired, and the repair shop was negligent in fixing the machine, that repair shop can be held responsible if you were hurt because of it.

FAQ: Can my boss fire me for claiming Workers’ Compensation?

No. New Jersey Workers’ Compensation law prohibits employers from retaliating or discriminating against employees who claim Workers’ Compensation benefits. However, many employers might fire you for another, made up reason. If you suspect that your employer’s motive was to punish you for claiming Workers’ Compensation, call us today to discuss your options.
