Workers' Compensation Archives

What are some types of workers' compensation benefits?

If you're a resident in New Jersey who has recently been injured in a work-related incident, you're likely going to have medical expenses ahead of you. Fortunately, you'll have workers' compensation benefits access as well. Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., will be available to help you navigate those benefits.

Differentiating between occupational diseases and injuries

There are numerous work-related hurdles that New Jersey residents will face during their lifetimes. Two of the most common issues involved in workers' compensation cases involve either work-related injuries, or work-related diseases. Both of these can affect workers in drastically different ways, but have an equally unpleasant and even potentially permanent impact.

Workers’ compensation retaliation is unfair and unlawful

At Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., we know that the process of filing or appealing a workers’ compensation claim, combined with recovering from your injuries, can be daunting. It may be even more discouraging for New Jersey residents who were targeted by abusive or retaliatory acts by their employers after seeking workers’ compensation.

What does investigation of unpaid wage claims look like?

As a worker in New Jersey, you deserve financial compensation for the services you provide. Unfortunately, there may be some cases in which you don't get your fair pay. If you have unpaid wages or back pay that you're working to recover, here is what to expect from an investigation into your claims.

Can an emotional injury come with physical effects?

You have a challenge ahead of you after suffering an injury at work, whether it was physical or emotional. Emotional injuries can be just as traumatizing as physical ones, yet often they are treated as if they are less important or do not have a significant impact. However, you and other New Jersey residents who are experiencing emotional trauma know that the effects can last long after your physical wounds have healed.

What workers need to know about mesothelioma

Many New Jersey workers are at risk for developing mesothelioma, a malignant form of cancer for which there is no cure. As FindLaw explains, mesothelioma is caused by the asbestos fibers that a worker inhales or ingests building up in the linings of his or her lungs, heart and/or abdomen.

What you need to know about asbestos in the workplace

Asbestos is a naturally-occurring mineral found in numerous products and materials with which New Jersey construction workers come into contact on a daily basis. As FindLaw explains, asbestos is known for its excellent insulating ability and resistance to fire and was extensively used in building projects through the 1970s. The Environmental Protection Agency estimates that 1 million commercial and public buildings contain significant amounts of asbestos.

Hearing loss is the nation’s most common workplace injury

If you have a job in New Jersey, odds are, the job poses at least some degree of risk. While certain jobs, such as those held by, say, firefighters or construction workers, have clear, overt risks involved, others, such as those held by office workers, have risks that are less apparent. Today’s single-most prevalent work-related injury, however, is hearing loss, and it can affect workers across multiple industries. At Lieberman, Ryan & Forrest, L.L.C., we understand the many ways in which work-related hearing loss can impact your life, and we have helped many clients who suffered this type of injury seek recourse.

Construction workers and traumatic brain injuries

New Jersey construction workers often work in hazardous places such as on roofs, scaffolds, tall ladders and in and around cranes. Consequently, the risk of falling is higher for construction workers than it is for people working in other industries and environments.
