It is important to understand that there are two types of work injuries recognized under New Jersey workers' compensation law. The first, specific accident, is when an injury is sustained at a particular moment, for example, if you fall down the stairs at your job and break your leg as a result. That injury can be recorded at a specific time, place, and date.

The second, an occupational exposure claim, is the result of repetitive motion or exposure over a long period of time, not one that occurs on a specific date such as factory workers exposed to chemicals or fumes on the job that are later diagnosed with lung disease as a result.

If you, or a loved one has sustained an injury at work in New Jersey, whether it be a specific accident or a result of repetitive occupational exposure, experienced workers' compensation trial attorney Manfred Ricciardelli is here to help you. Call us today at 877-360-0183.
