Workers Compensation Benefits Available After Suffering a Work-Related Injury

  • Medical benefits for all reasonable and necessary treatment and rehabilitation
  • Temporary disability, providing partial wage replacement when an employee cannot work or earns reduced income on modified duty
  • Permanent partial disability, available when a worker suffers a disability that does not render them unable to work, and which pays benefits based on the type and severity of disability 
  • Permanent total disability, which continues temporary disability benefits after they expire for as long as an employee remains unable to work in any type of employment

How to File Your Workers’ Comp Claim

In New Jersey, a worker normally files a workers’ comp claim by notifying their employer of their work injury or occupational illness. Under state regulations, an injured worker is required to notify their employer of a work injury within 14 days of the date the injury occurred to be entitled to workers’ comp benefits from the date of injury. Notice must be given no later than 90 days after injury for a worker to be eligible for any workers’ comp benefits.

A worker may give oral notice to their employer, although written notice ensures that the worker has a record that their employer was informed of their injury. Notice may be given to any person in a position of authority with an employer, such as a manager, supervisor, or HR representative. Some employers or their workers’ compensation insurers may have forms that an injured worker can fill out to give notice of a claim. 

An employer who receives notice of an employee’s work injury must file a first report of injury with the Division of Workers’ Compensation. If an employer fails to file this report or otherwise denies a worker’s claim to benefits, the worker must file a written claim petition themselves with the Division. After filing a claim petition, a worker may choose to resolve their claim through an informal hearing with a workers’ compensation judge to try to reach a mediated resolution with their employer, or through a formal claim hearing where the judge will issue a binding ruling. A claim petition also allows an injured worker to collect financial compensation for their permanent disability or injury.

Jersey City Workers Compensation Law

In New Jersey, employers are required to carry “no-fault” insurance that pays benefits to employees injured during the course of employment. “No-fault” insurance simply means that regardless of who caused the accident, an employee who is injured in the course of employment is entitled to certain benefits. Unfortunately, employer’s insurance companies tend to complicate matters by creating inappropriate legal obstacles that hinder employees from easily securing the benefits they deserve. Consequently, securing benefits under this system depends on the skill and experience of your attorney. Luckily, our top civil attorney, Dan Santarsiero has handled over one thousand workers’ compensation cases and is known statewide for obtaining maximum compensation for his clients.
