Attorneys Helping Victims of Workplace Accidents in New Jersey

Internal injuries are not observable with the naked eye, but they can be extremely painful. Internal injuries can cause physical pain and detrimentally affect both your ability to work and your ability to engage in the activities of daily life. If you sustained internal injuries in an accident in your workplace, you may be eligible to recover workers’ compensation benefits and should speak to an attorney. At New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyer of JFM Law, a New Jersey internal injury lawyer is skilled at handling workers’ compensation matters, and we will vigorously pursue any benefits that you may be eligible to recover. We assist people in a variety of workers’ compensation matters in cities throughout New Jersey.

Internal Injuries Commonly Caused by Workplace Accidents

Generally, internal injuries are caused by blunt force trauma, such as an impact from a car accident, a fall on a construction site, or any other collision with a large object. Forceful blows can cause lung injuries, including pneumothorax, abdominal aneurysms, ruptured spleens, and organ failure. Blunt force also frequently causes internal bleeding, which can lead to stroke and other significant issues. In some instances, a person suffering from an internal injury caused by blunt force trauma will not show immediate signs of the injury, and they will not seek treatment for the injury until hours or days after an accident occurs. Internal injuries may also be caused by an object unexpectedly piercing a portion of an employee’s body. Injuries caused by penetrative trauma include internal bleeding, torn muscles, ligament and tendon injuries, and organ damage. Our internal injury attorneys can help New Jersey employees seek benefits for any of these injuries.

Pursuing Workers’ Compensation Benefits for Internal Injuries

The first and arguably most important step that any employee who suffers an injury at work must take is reporting the injury. This is because New Jersey has strict deadlines for when a workplace injury must be reported. Failing to report an injury in a timely manner can result in a waiver of the right to recover benefits. Pursuant to the law, an employee should notify his or her employer of an injury within 14 days of when it occurs. Employees who provide late notice may still be eligible to receive benefits under certain circumstances. If an employee does not notify an employer of a work-related injury within 90 days of the injury, however, and the employer has no independent knowledge of the injury, the employee cannot recover workers’ compensation benefits.

If an employee suffering from an internal injury complies with the New Jersey workers’ compensation notice requirements and sufficiently establishes that his or her injury is work-related, the employee may be able to recover both medical benefits and income benefits with the assistance of a New Jersey internal injury attorney. Medical benefits include the medical treatment needed to restore the employee to his or her pre-accident condition, as long as the treatment is reasonable. The employee may also be able to recover income benefits if he or she cannot work because of his or her injuries. Temporary total disability benefits are paid at a rate of 70% of the employee’s weekly wage but must fall within a state minimum and maximum. If the employee remains disabled past the temporary disability period, he or she may be eligible for either permanent partial disability benefits or permanent total disability benefits. The amount of permanent disability benefits that an employee receives and the duration for which they are paid depending on the nature and severity of the injury.
