What appears to be a straight-forward workplace injury can quickly turn to something much more complicated where it results in an infection. Since our compensation lawyers have over fifteen (15) years of experience handling NJ compensation cases, they are very knowledgeable in injury and disability resulting from infection. A work related infection can take a wide variety of forms including staph, osteomyelitis, gangrene, cellulitis, pneumonia, strep, and meningitis. New Jersey workers compensation law permits an injured worker to recover for damage caused by a workplace injury or exposure. It is also important to keep in mind that while an infection may have a delayed onset, such as in the case of staph, strep or meningitis, or be latent for an extended period, the workers compensation claimant is permitted to make a recovery in NJ so long as the infection is causally related to a work injury. An employer or its workers compensation insurer can also be held accountable under New Jersey law for an aggravation or exacerbation of a pre-existing infection or infectious condition like osteomyelitis, cellulitis or gangrene. pneumonia always have a potential for involvement when an employee sustains a work injury that requires an extended hospital stay.
