Do Not Sit On Your Rights Because There Are Strict Notice Requirements To Reporting Your Claim
The Workers’ Compensation Act imposes strict time limitations for reporting a workplace injury. N.J.S.A. 34:15-17 allows an employer to deny a claim absent notice of injury provided within 14 days of the accident and/or occurrence. While there are exceptions to this rule, you should not put yourself in a situation of vulnerability. Our lawyers will make certain that notice in the following form required by N.J.S.A. 34:15-18 is personally served on the employer or their agent:
“The notice referred to may be served personally upon the employer, or upon any agent of the employer upon whom a summons may be served in a civil action, or by sending it through the mail to the employer at the last known residence or business place thereof within the state, and shall be substantially in the following form:
“To (name of employer):
You are hereby notified that a personal injury was received by (name of employee injured), who was in your employ at (place) while engaged as (nature of employment), on or about the …… day of …………, nineteen hundred and …………, and that compensation will be claimed therefor.”
