Workers’ Compensation Claims Might Have Several Benefits After A Workplace Injury

Workers’ compensation may cover a worker’s illness or injury. Benefits include:

  • Insurance covers necessary medical care and rehabilitation.
  • Temporary disability compensation can help replace lost income when an employee is unable to work or has their hours cut due to a disability.
  • Permanent partial disability compensation may be available to impaired people who can still work. It’s called “workers’ comp.”
  • After short-term incapacity, an employee becomes permanently disabled. This guarantees the employee a steady income as long as the disability lasts.
  • Death benefits cover funeral expenditures and a share of the worker’s lost salary for family members of workers who died on the job. Workers who die from work-related injuries or illnesses receive these benefits.

New Jersey Workers’ Comp Laws

New Jersey requires employers to obtain “no-fault” insurance for workplace injuries. No-fault insurance guarantees injured workers compensation regardless of fault. Unfortunately, employer insurance corporations often construct unnecessary legal roadblocks that delay workers’ benefits. This delays workers’ benefits.

Worker’s Compensation Claim Guidelines

New Jersey workers’ compensation claims begin with notifying an employer of a work-related illness or injury. State laws require employees to report their employers within 14 days of workplace injuries to get workers’ compensation. Workers’ compensation benefits must be claimed within three months after an injury.

Oral notice is acceptable, but written notice ensures the employer is aware of the injury. Managers, supervisors, and HR specialists may receive notice. Some firms and workers’ compensation insurers supply documentation for injured workers to file claims.

Employers must immediately report workplace injuries to the Division of Workers’ Compensation. If an employer does not provide this report or refuses to do so, an employee must file a formal claim petition with the Division to get benefits. A worker who submits a claim petition can choose between the formal claim hearing, in which the court makes a legally binding ruling, or the informal hearing, in which the judge attempts to mediate a settlement between the worker and their employer. An injured worker who files a claim petition may get compensation for continued incapacity or harm.

Jersey City Workers' Compensation FAQs

Do I have a workplace injury claim if I’m an independent contractor?

Is firing a worker's compensation recipient legal?

Even though the person is getting workers’ compensation, the employer can fire them at will or according to any contract. Nonetheless, it is illegal to terminate an employee who has filed a workers’ compensation claim or who has a disability (or is considered to have a disability) but is still competent to perform their job obligations (with or with reasonable accommodation). Even if the employee’s termination was legal, the business must pay workers’ compensation payments.

Workers' compensation exemptions: when?

Workers’ compensation covers solely the worker’s injury-related financial losses. Hence, it does not compensate for human suffering, emotional agony, or reduced quality of life caused by a work-related injury or illness.
