Here are some of the questions you may have:
What does workers’ compensation cover in the state of New Jersey?
Workers’ compensation helps injured workers in a variety of ways. Workers’ compensation in New Jersey will cover the cost of your medical bills and a portion of your lost wages. If you are hurt on the job, it is always best to proceed with an experienced attorney on your side, as insurance companies will sometimes try and deny injured workers the compensation they need to heal.
How long will I have to bring a workers’ compensation claim in the state of New Jersey?
As with all injury-related claims, plaintiffs are required to bring them within the state’s statute of limitations. Here in New Jersey, the statute of limitations for workers’ compensation claims is, typically, two years. This means that you are required to file your claim within two years of the date your accident occurred. Waiting any longer than two years will most likely result in you losing your right to compensation. You should also note that if you’re looking to bring a workers’ compensation claim, it’s always best to notify your employer the date of or the day after your injury occurred. If you fail to notify your employer or supervisor, they may try and deny that your injury really happened on the job.
If you have become the victim of an on-the-job injury, it may be beneficial to speak with an attorney and the doctor that is treating you to determine how to make the process as easy as possible.
