Top 10 Most Dangerous Jobs in New Jersey


Elizabeth, New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

As the premier workers’ compensation lawyers in Elizabeth, New Jersey, we at Mintz & Geftic have been representing the hardworking men and women of New Jersey for over 25 years. In this time, our workers’ comp lawyers have represented clients from all different industries who have suffered from work-related injuries.  This list includes construction workers, factory workers, truck drivers and many others that suffered some kind of personal injury while working.

Who is at Risk?

With all of our workers’ compensation experience, we can tell you that every single job contains some level of risk when it comes to work-related injuries.

We have seen workers’ comp clients working at a basic desk job get injured from a slip and fall accident at their office. In a case just last year, we helped obtain a large settlement for an office worker who suffered brain injuries in an auto accident. This settlement included $430k for negligence as well as $101k for workers’ compensation benefits, since this client was performing work-related duties when the accident occurred.

Of course, those working in jobs like construction are definitely subject to a higher level of risk than your typical office employees. In another case from last year, we had a client suffer work-related injuries when falling from scaffolding while at work. He endured multiple fractures to the skull, knees, wrists and face, along with a long list of other serious injuries. We were able to help the client obtain a settlement of a million dollars for negligence and an additional $136,500 for workers’ compensation benefits.
