If you have been hurt by an electric shock, burn or chemical exposure on the job, the challenges of your injury can be exacerbated by issues regarding financial responsibility. According to New Jersey law, you have the right to receive workers’ comp through your employer-paid benefits.
Struggles Connected To Such Injuries
Suffering an electric shock, burn or chemical exposure can pose many challenges to the victim.
- Electric shocks can result in multiple symptoms, including burns and shortness of breath. Contractions during the incident can create broken bones and associated pains.
- Chemical exposure can result from short and long-term exposure to toxins without appropriate/sufficient protective gear. The potential results include chemical burns, lung cancer, heavy metal poisoning and brain damage.
- Burns in the workplace occur from multiple sources, including electricity and chemical exposure. Severe instances can wreak havoc on your immune system, and these injuries are likely to damage nerves, blood vessels and muscle tissues. Damage to temperature-regulating mechanisms can require ongoing medical care.
Victims of these injuries frequently suffer psychological challenges related to their post-injury appearance and abilities.
