How to File a Claim for Workers’ Compensation

Filing a workers’ compensation claim in New Jersey begins with notifying your employer of your work injury. The workers’ comp law requires you to provide “prompt” notice of your injury to your employer, typically within 14 days of a workplace accident. However, notice must be provided no later than 90 days after suffering a work injury to remain eligible for workers’ comp benefits. A worker can give notice to a supervisor or manager or another officer or authority figure in the company. Notice may also be given orally or in writing, although written notice is always preferred. 

After receiving notice of a worker’s injury, an employer or its workers’ compensation insurer is required to file a first report of injury with the state Division of Workers’ compensation. The employer or its insurer must decide to either accept or deny the employee’s claim within 60 days. If an employee’s claim is not filed with the Division or is denied by their employer, they must file a written claim petition with the Division. In a claim petition, an injured worker may choose to either resolve their claim in an informal hearing or pursue a formal hearing before a workers’ compensation judge for a binding ruling. 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.

The sooner you act the better, as there are deadlines and limitations when a workers’ compensation complaint can be filed relative to the date of the accident.
