Are you one of the many workers in New Jersey who suffer from the effects of a work-related repetitive stress injury? According to Medical News Today, this common condition goes by many different names: regional musculoskeletal disorder, occupational overuse syndrome, cumulative trauma disorder and repetitive motion injuries, to name a few.
New Jersey is one of only 12 states with no-fault insurance laws, allowing residents who are injured in a car accident to cover associated treatment or lost wage costs up to policy limits of their insurance -- no matter who is at fault for the accident.
If you are employed in New Jersey, you should educate yourself about the type of assistance that you may seek should you be hurt while at work. As explained by the State of New Jersey Division of Workers' Compensation, the program provides benefits to cover medical costs and some wage replacement if you are unable to work either temporarily or permanently due to your injuries.
Many industries can contribute to hearing loss for people of all ages. Whether you work in construction where jackhammers and work trucks assault your ears or in an office with the constant drone of machinery and radios in the background, your hearing can suffer. You and other New Jersey residents should understand the impact of job-related hearing loss.
