Cranford Workers Compensation Lawyer

Knowledgeable Cranford Work Injury Attorney Represents Clients Injured in Work Accidents in Union County and Across NJ

Thousands of workers in New Jersey every year suffer work injuries and occupational illnesses that require them to seek medical treatment and keep them out of work during their recovery. In cases of serious injury or illness, workers may be left with permanent disabilities that restrict or eliminate their ability to work in any form of gainful employment. New Jersey’s workers’ compensation system was set up to provide injured and ill workers with financial resources to help mitigate the financial consequences that a work injury or occupational illness can cause. Unfortunately, some employers and workers’ compensation insurers make it difficult for injured or ill employees to get the benefits they need and deserve. If your workers’ compensation claim has been delayed or denied, a Cranford workers compensation lawyer can help you cut through the red tape and secure benefits to assist in your recovery.

Recovering Benefits From Workers’ Compensation

The workers’ compensation system in New Jersey can provide several types of financial benefits to an employee who has suffered a work injury or occupational illness. These benefits may include:

  • Payment of all reasonable and necessary treatment and rehabilitation for a work-related injury or illness
  • Temporary disability benefits that provide partial wage replacement when a worker suffers a loss of income while recovering from their work injury or occupational illness
  • Permanent partial disability benefits, which offers payments based on the type and severity of a disability that does not render an employee completely unable to work
  • Permanent total disability benefits, which continue temporary disability benefits after they expire for as long as an employee remains unable to work in any type of job
  • Death benefits, which provides partial replacement of a deceased worker’s wages, along with up to $3,500 in contribution toward funeral and burial expenses, if a worker’s death was caused by a work injury or occupational illness

What Is Involved with Filing a Workers’ Comp Claim?

The process of filing a workers’ comp claim in New Jersey begins with a worker giving notice of their work injury or occupational illness to their employer. This notice must be provided no later than 14 days after an injury to ensure that a worker receives benefits from the date of their injury. However, notice must be given no later than 90 days after a work injury for an employee to be eligible for any workers’ comp benefits. Workers may give oral or written notice of their claim to their employer, although many employers or workers’ compensation insurers will have forms for injured workers to complete.

An employer who receives notice of a work injury is required to file a first report of injury with the Division of Workers’ Compensation. If an employer doesn’t file this report, or if they or their insurer denies a worker’s claim or terminates their benefits, the worker must file a written claim petition with the Division. A claim petition allows a worker to pursue mediation through an informal hearing with a workers’ compensation judge, or a formal claim hearing before the compensation judge to obtain a binding ruling on their workers’ comp claim. A claim petition also allows an injured worker to collect financial compensation for their permanent disability or injury.
