New Jersey Third Party Claims – Personal Injury & Accidents Lawyers Holding Third Parties Responsible for Work-Related Injuries


If you’ve been injured on the job, you may find it impossible to continue working. When you are first injured, you may automatically look to your workers’ compensation benefits. Unfortunately, a workers’ comp claim might not provide adequate compensation for a severe injury.

You may be able to receive additional compensation for your work-related injury if a third party was at fault. You may have a personal injury claim against a manufacturer, property owner or subcontractor.
If a third party has caused a workplace accident or contributed to your work-related injury, an experienced personal injury lawyer can help you file a civil claim against the third party.

This will allow you to seek workers’ compensation benefits as well as compensation from the third party who is responsible for your injury.
