New Jersey Workers' Compensation Claims Decline

Comments Off

The New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation (NJ DWC) reported a 5% decline in the filing of claims in 2005 (37,248) from 2004 (39,212). The statistic also represents a 31% decline from 1992 (54,164).

Is it safer work sites, less jobs or more injuries going unreported? Maybe a little of each. I do suspect, however, that there are thousands of undiagnosed and unreported injury, illness and disease caused by occupational exposures to chemicals, fumes, dusts, asbestos as well as repetitive stress and cumulative trauma. These diseases include cancer, COPD, asthma, mesothelioma, hearing loss and carpel tunnel syndrome.

If you or a loved one suffer from any of these conditions, the experienced workers’ compensation lawyers at Bagolie Friedman can help you get benefits you deserve.
