New Jersey Workers’ Compensation System
The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation System was created to serve the need to protect employees who were injured or contracted diseases while performing their duties at work. Before this system, worker’s rights were largely unprotected, and injured workers were simply discarded by employers after they could no longer perform the job. Nowadays, employers are required to carry “no-fault” insurance, which covers the medical costs and lost wages for employees who have been injured during the course of employment. “No-fault” means that regardless of who caused the injury, the employee is entitled to compensation for the subsequent medical costs and lost wages. Therefore, if you have been injured on the job you are potentially eligible for compensation. Unfortunately, the system that was originally designed to protect employees has been perverted by insurance companies who at times, inappropriately seek to hinder injured employees from receiving compensation. This is why it is crucial to hire a highly skilled workers’ compensation attorney who understands all the nuances of the New Jersey workers’ compensation system and will aggressively pursue the benefits you deserve.
