We Represent Machine Operators Injured on the Job

Machine operators are exposed to significant dangers in the workplace.  When one of those dangers causes an injury or illness, you should not be the one to pay.  Machine operators are at risk of sustaining:

Even if you think the injury is relatively minor, it is important to notify your supervisor immediately.  Seemingly minor injuries can eventually cause serious damage, especially if you continue to work.  Getting medical treatment as soon as possible can be key to preventing permanent damage if possible.

While getting legal help might be the last thing on your mind, many injured workers face challenges when filing a Workers’ Compensation claim.  Employers and insurance companies are often financially motivated to deny your claim or minimize your benefits.  They might even send you to multiple doctors with the goal of getting a medical diagnosis that could require you to return to work before you’re ready.

At Team Law, we offer a free case review so that we can explore your options and help you understand your legal rights.  To schedule your free consultation, call our dedicated Workers’ Compensation lawyers anytime.

Helping Injured Machine Operators Understand the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation System

At Team Law, we are proactive in our approach.  That means we do not simply wait around for your benefit checks to come in.  We take every possible action to get you fair compensation as quickly as possible.  Workers’ Compensation benefits generally cover:

Wage replacement benefits can be characterized as temporary or permanent, and partial or total.  The type of wage replacement benefits you will receive depends on the severity of your injury.

Many clients have questions about whether they are entitled to receive additional compensation for things like pain and suffering.  The availability of additional compensation depends on who was responsible for your accident.  Workers’ Compensation is available regardless of fault, but does not provide pain and suffering payments.  If someone who was not your employer, a co-worker, or you caused the accident, we can file a third-party claim for additional compensation.  For example, the following parties might be held responsible in a third-party lawsuit:

You could be entitled to both Workers’ Compensation benefits and additional compensation for pain and suffering, loss of enjoyment of life, mental anguish and more through a lawsuit against another company.  Our accident and injury lawyers at Team Law believe in taking action to protect injured workers’ rights.

Frequently Asked Questions About Workers’ Compensation for Machine Operators

FAQ: What if I lost a hand or finger operating a machine and cannot go back to work as a machine operator?

New Jersey Workers’ Compensation provides compensation for permanent injuries—including loss of a body part—according to a payment schedule. You can receive financial compensation and, in some cases, may even be entitled to vocational rehabilitation that will train you to work in a new type of job. Call us today to learn more about the compensation and benefits you are entitled to receive.

FAQ: I was hurt operating a machine because my employer did not follow safety regulations. Can I sue if I know that my employer intentionally ignored the safety rules?

Probably not. Workers’ Compensation shields your employer from liability in exchange for providing benefits under a no-fault system. Even employers who fail to follow the safety rules are usually protected from lawsuits. However, the one exception to this rule allows injured workers to sue their employer when the employer:

– Acted intentionally, and
– The actions created a substantial risk of injury or death

For example, if your employer intentionally removed protective safety gear and knew he was creating a significant risk of severe injury for employees, we may have a case. Call us today to discuss the details of your situation.
