Attorneys Helping Injured New Jersey Workers Recover Benefits

The focus of a person who suffers a work-related injury or illness should be obtaining any medical treatment necessary to help the person recover from his or her harm. Although New Jersey’s workers’ compensation law explicitly grants injured workers the right to medical treatment, the process of proving what constitutes necessary treatment and obtaining this treatment can be complicated. If you sustained an injury or illness that arose out of your employment, you should speak to an attorney regarding the medical treatment that you may be eligible to receive. The New Jersey workers’ compensation lawyers at New Jersey Workers Compensation Lawyer of JFM Law are proficient at aiding employees who suffered work-related harm in seeking the medical treatment that they need. We represent people in workers’ compensation claims throughout New Jersey.

The Right to Medical Treatment Under The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law

Any person who is eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits under New Jersey law has the right to medical treatment. To be eligible to receive benefits, a person must be an employee and must be suffering from an injury or illness sustained in the course and scope of his or her employment. In other words, independent contractors are not eligible for workers’ compensation benefits, nor are people who are unable to work due to a nonwork-related injury or illness.

Once an employee has established his or her eligibility for workers’ compensation benefits and filed a workers’ compensation claim, the employer must provide the employee with any medical treatment that is reasonable and necessary, including prescriptions and hospitalizations. The employer bears the sole responsibility for the cost of any necessary treatment. The law does not define what constitutes necessary or reasonable treatment, however, and in cases in which the necessity of treatment is disputed, a workers’ compensation judge may be required to determine whether the requested treatment falls within the parameters of required medical treatment.
