Workers' Compensation Laws in New Jersey

If you have been injured in a workplace accident in New Jersey, it is your right to file a worker's comp claim to receive compensation for your injuries. Your employer must pay workers' comp benefits for you and you can file a claim to receive benefits for your injuries. In exchange for receiving workers' comp benefits, you are prohibited from suing your employer for damages, unless the injury was intentional. Workers' comp is a "no fault" system. It doesn't matter who caused the injury, if it occurred on the job during the course of your employment, you are covered.

Workers' comp insurance may be provided by the employer himself, or through a private insurance company. It is in your best interest, however, to have an attorney represent you. Even though your claim has been approved, the amount given to you by the insurance company may not be adequate for your needs. It is also possible that your claim may be denied and having an effective lawyer represent you will help to make sure your rights are protected.
