Brick Workplace Injury Attorneys
Almost all workplaces must, by law, offer New Jersey workers’ compensation. If you are hurt while working in Ocean County, Monmouth County, or anywhere in New Jersey, you deserve compensation, regardless of who was at fault. Your employer must give you the opportunity to get workers’ compensation if you ask.
However, it is not easy to work through the process. And if you try to work through the pain and don’t report the personal injury right away your benefits could be denied. Even if you do everything perfectly, workers’ compensation insurance companies are very good at finding reasons to deny claims.

Beyond Your Brick Workers Comp Claim
After reviewing your workplace injury case, our Ocean County lawyers might find grounds for more than just a workers’ compensation claim. It might be possible to file a third-party action, in which someone besides your employer is sued for damages. For example:
- If a different sub-contractor on a construction site is to blame for your accident, you may have a third-party construction accident.
- If the manufacturer of a defective machine is to blame, you may have a third-party product liability claim against the manufacturer of the product.
- If you are involved in a motor vehicle accident and the other driver is at fault you may have a third-party automobile accident claim.
Third-party claims can often get you more compensation than if you have just a workers’ compensation case. Peter Luizzi has handled many third-party cases for clients’ injured in work related accidents. The best compliment he gets is the constant referrals from past and present clients who admire his service and hard work.
