Our New Jersey Explosion Accident Attorneys Understanding Your Rights

Victims of work-related explosions should be able to receive financial support for medical bills and a portion of lost wages by filing a workers’ compensation claim. Even if an explosion was caused by hazardous workplace conditions or employer negligence, it is important to understand that you can’t file for workers’ compensation and file a claim against your employer. However, when the explosion results from the negligence of a third party, support may also be available through a third-party claim. When an explosion occurs because of the negligence of a property owner, support may be available through a New Jersey premises liability claim. There are many potentially liable parties in such cases.

Getting the Support You Need

If you or a loved one has been hurt in an explosion, please do not hesitate obtain more information regarding your legal rights. Your ability to support yourself and your family while recovering from serious injury may not be possible without filing for workers’ compensation.
