When You’re Injured On The Clock
Work-Related Accidents And Injuries
If you get injured while performing work-related duties, you are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits without having to prove fault. While workers’ compensation is intended to give injured workers and their families swift relief, it also limits the amount of benefits that can be recovered. At Piro Zinna Cifelli Paris & Genitempo LLC in Nutley, New Jersey, we are experienced in pursuing claims to maximize benefits for injured workers. We will pursue every avenue of recovery so that you can get the compensation you deserve for lost wages, medical expenses, pain and suffering, and long-term care needs.
Workers’ Compensation Claims
Immediately after an injury, it is critical that you file a workers’ compensation claim. You should report the injury to your employer and also seek counsel as soon as possible to protect your rights. Our firm will review evidence, collect necessary medical documentation and handle every aspect of your workers’ compensation claim.
Our workplace accident lawyers are experienced with injuries, including:
- Falls from heights
- Construction site accidents
- Slip-/trip-and-fall injury
- Automobile and work truck accidents
- Machinery and equipment accidents
- Fires, explosions, electrical accidents

- Industrial accidents

- Wrongful death
Third-Party Claims And Maximizing Your Recovery
Many injured workers do not realize that they could be entitled to financial recovery beyond workers’ comp. While you cannot pursue a claim against an employer or their insurance company, you can pursue claims against other negligent parties responsible for your injuries and losses, including machinery manufacturers, property owner/management companies, construction managers, subcontractors and automobile drivers. We will leave no stone unturned during our investigation to identify all responsible parties and to pursue the compensation you deserve.
