Stressing Over Losing a Job Should Not Add to Work Injury

Law Offices of James M. Curran

It is no secret that there are certain risks that accompany construction work in New Jersey. Hence the fact that safety equipment such as brightly colored vests and hard hats are required when working on a construction site. Regardless of precautions that one may take, accidents still happen. Accidents can result in a work injury that may require a person to take time away from work to recover.

An accident occurred at a construction site in Pequannock Township that resulted in crush injuries to a worker. He had been working in a trench when a retaining wall collapsed. The debris from the collapse fell into the trench, trapping the 61-year-old worker up to his waist and leaving him unable to move.

Emergency crews worked quickly to free the man, and he was then airlifted to St. Joseph’s Hospital where he is reported to be in stable condition. Such accidents can cause serious injuries that may not be immediately apparent as the compression to the body can cause circulatory issues and therefore put undue stress on a person’s heart and circulatory system. It may take time to fully assess the impact of the injury on the worker. 

Workers’ compensation insurance exists to aid workers in such a situation when a work injury keeps them away from the job. If a person has questions regarding his or her rights under the law regarding workers’ comp insurance in New Jersey a professional experienced in dealing with such issues can help. Regaining one’s health is the paramount concern, and one should not be subject to the added stress of worrying about losing one’s job.
