My question involves workers compensation law for the state of: New Jersey
An employee fell off of ladder two years ago and injured himself. He was out on Workers Comp for one year and then a year ago got cleared back for work. He is back at work, working a 40 hour work week. He has some discomfort due to his injury but can work and his job was changed a bit to accommodate that.
Can the employee sue for injuries? If yes, and the Workers Comp Insurance pays up to the limit, can the employee go after the employer directly if there was no negligence on the employers part for the injury?
