I am receiving payment for injuries from a third party. Can I also receive New Jersey workers’ compensation benefits?

If you are collecting twice for the same injury, workers’ compensation allows the employer’s insurance carriers to get credit to prevent workers fraudulently collecting twice for the same injuries and/or disabilities.

There are some instances, where a worker may file a personal injury lawsuit against a third party if said party is a contractor, another driver is involved, or if a defective product caused your workplace injury. Your Petrillo & Goldberg Law workers’ compensation attorney can advise you in this area.
