The Mark Law Firm handles workers’ compensation injuries throughout the state of New Jersey, and we are here to help in your time of need.
New Jersey is a no-fault state, which means that when you are injured at work, fault is not typically at issue.
When you’re hurt on the job, the court will determine whether your injury occurred in the course and scope of your employment. Typically, this means that you were acting for the benefit of your employer. If so, you will most likely be covered.
There are a few situations in which an employee may not be covered by workers’ compensation, and fault does become an issue. For example, if the injury arises from criminal acts, intoxication, horseplay, or third-party involvement unrelated to your employment, then the question of fault may be relevant. These issues can be complex, but the team at The Mark Law Firm has the experience and expertise to effectively guide you through the process.
