The Process of Pursuing Workers’ Comp in NJ

To obtain workers’ compensation benefits in New Jersey, you must first provide notice of your work injury and workers’ comp claim to your employer. Injured workers are required to give “prompt” notice of their claim, which typically means within 14 days of sustaining a workplace injury. However, notice must be provided no later than 90 days after a work accident for an injured employee to be eligible for workers’ comp benefits. 

You can give notice of your work injury to a supervisor or manager or any other individual in an authority position with your employer. Notice may be oral or written, although your employer or its workers’ compensation insurer may have claim forms that you can fill out to fulfill your notice requirement. 

Once you give notice of your work injury, your employer must file a first report of injury with the state Division of Workers’ Compensation. Your employer or its insurer must also accept or deny your claim within 60 days. If your employer does not file a first report of injury with the division or denies your claim or requested benefits, you must file a written claim petition with the Division to seek benefits under your claim in an informal or formal hearing. A claim petition must be filed within two years of the date of the work injury, or two years following the last date that workers’ comp benefits were received for a work injury.  A claim petition must also be filed to secure financial benefits for a worker’s permanent injury or disability.

About Trenton, NJ

Trenton is a city located in Mercer County, New Jersey. Both the county seat of Mercer County as well as the capital of the state of New Jersey, Trenton also briefly served as the capital of the United States in 1784. Trenton was named in the early 1700s for William Trent, one of the area’s largest landholders. Historically known for the Battle of Trenton, following George Washington’s famous crossing of the Delaware River on which the city sits, Trenton grew steadily during the 19th century with the introduction of pottery and wire rope industries. Today, Trenton’s economy is largely centered around the operations of the New Jersey state government.

The New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development reports that, in 2020, the state saw a total of approximately 92,400 cases of non-fatal work-related injuries and occupational illnesses.
