United States Postal Service New Jersey Postal Employee Injury Attorneys Helping You Seek Benefits for a Work-Related Injury As a postal employee, you can be at risk for a wide range of work-related injuries. Letter carriers are always at risk of injury in a motor vehicle or pedestrian accident. In inclement weather, you still have to do your job and can be hurt on icy or slippery sidewalks or walkways, or by falling debris. You can develop repetitive stress injuries from carrying a heavy mail bag, or from walking a mail route five days a week or repetitively using your arms and hands. On the other hand, if you work as a clerk or mail handler, you may be lifting trays or boxes and other items on a regular basis. You may be pushing or pulling large containers, you can sustain back, leg or joint injuries from lifting items that are too heavy or from the repeated motion of lifting and moving pieces of mail. Maintenance workers also suffer many injuries due to the physical nature of their work. As a federal employee, when you are injured at work, any workers’ compensation benefits must be pursued through the Federal Employees’ Compensation Act (FECA), the federal government’s version of state workers’ compensation laws. FECA differs greatly from state statutes, so you want an experienced and knowledgeable federal employee injury lawyer to handle your case.
