Worker's face burnt by molten metal
Posted on Jul 07, 2012
Somerset, N.J. – A New Jersey worker was recently burned after being splashed with molten metal at Carteret Die Casting Corporation on Monday, July 2.
According to the Daily Record, the worker may have removed the cover from a piece of machinery while at work. He suffered second-degree burns on his forehead, cheek, and nose. Paramedics responded and took him to the burn center at Saint Barnabas Medical Center in Livingston.
It is unclear whether the worker was responsible for this accident. However, even if he was completely at fault, he is still entitled to New Jersey Workers’ Compensation benefits. Like most states, New Jersey is a “No Fault” state when it comes to work related injuries. A worker is entitled to benefits as long as he was performing his job at the time of the injury.
If you are involved in a New Jersey work accident, even if it is entirely your fault, you may be entitled to benefits. These benefits may include:
- payment of your medical bills
- pay for your lost time from work
- a cash settlement
