Dedicated and Experienced New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Attorney
Work-Related Injury or Illness | Workplace Accidents | Repetitive Stress or Motion Injuries | Occupational Disease
In New Jersey, when you have been hurt on the job, you are entitled to Workers’ Compensation benefits, even if you accidentally injure yourself at work. New Jersey Workers’ Compensation laws require employers or the employer’s workers’ compensation carrier to provide injured workers with medical treatment for the work-related injuries; weekly temporary total disability benefits (70% of the injured workers’ weekly wage subject to a statutory cap) in certain circumstances; permanent partial disability monetary benefits if you have permanent residuals from the work injury; and permanent total disability benefits (70% of the injured workers’ weekly wage subject to a statutory cap) if the injured worker is unable to return to the workforce due to the work-related injuries. In addition, dependents of a worker who dies of a work-related injury or illness may be entitled to weekly compensation payments.
