Work-related injuries and diseases

Every year, thousands of workers are seriously injured on the job. Severe workplace injuries can leave you temporarily or permanently disabled. Who will pay your medical expenses? How can you provide for your family if you are unable to work? What if your injury prevents you from returning to your job? These are just some of the many questions facing individuals who have suffered work-related injuries. Luckily, we are here to provide answers.

Wysoker, Glassner, Weingartner, Gonzalez & Lockspeiser in New Brunswick, New Jersey represents workers who have been injured on the job. We help injured workers obtain compensation for past and future medical expenses, lost wages, job retraining, and pain and suffering. Our work place injury lawyers assist clients who have suffered:

  • Head, neck, shoulder, and knee injuries
  • Eye injuries
  • Hearing loss
  • Loss of limb
  • Work-induced heart attack or stroke
  • Repetitive stress injuries, including carpal tunnel syndrome
  • First, second, and third degree burns
  • Occupational illnesses from asbestos or chemical exposure

Common causes for injuries include construction site accidents, trench collapses, plant explosions, toxic chemical exposure, collapsed scaffolding, falling objects, falls from elevated structures, and job site accidents involving cars, trucks, cranes, and heavy equipment. Asbestos exposure is a significant factor in the development of pulmonary (lung) conditions. Our lawyers have been handling asbestos claims and class action lawsuits for nearly 30 years.

After you have been injured, it is important that you contact an experienced work injury attorney who can help you file a workers’ compensation claim and/or a 3rd party lawsuit. Our first step is to ensure that you get the appropriate medical treatment for your injury or illness. We contact your employer’s insurance company to authorize treatment. We then get to work on your work injury claim.
