South Jersey Industrial Negligence Lawyer
New Jersey may be known as the Garden State, but it is also home to several important industries with complex installations, including chemical plants, oil refineries, shipping facilities, pharmaceutical companies, food processing plants and others. Wherever there are industries, there are workers, and unfortunately, workplace accidents do happen.
If an employee is injured in an industrial accident, the injured worker is entitled to workers’ compensation. However, there are circumstances in which a worker sustains an injury in an industrial accident caused by an entity other than his or her employer such as a general contractor or subcontractor. In these cases of industrial negligence, the worker who has been harmed may pursue a personal injury lawsuit against a third party responsible for the injury.
Though industrial negligence is complex with many potential factors involved, at Petrillo & Goldberg Law, our team of experienced attorneys will be able to assess the facts concerning a worker’s specific circumstances regarding their injury and help them determine if they have a claim in addition to their workers’ compensation rights.
If you or a loved one have been injured in an industrial accident in South Jersey and the metropolitan Philadelphia area, our attorneys will help you secure the compensation for your injuries that you deserve.
