New Jersey Workers’ Compensation
Workers’ compensation in New Jersey provides compensation for medical care, rehabilitation, and other expenses related to a work injury. If a worker misses work for more than seven days, they may receive weekly payments for up 70 percent of their weekly wages, with a limit of $921 each week as of 2019.
Benefits for Weehawken workers’ compensation may include:
- Medical payments
- Relief for the families of workers killed while working
- Reimbursement for the cost of driving to and from medical appointments
- Vocational training if a worker is unable to return to their old job
- Funeral expenses
When a worker can return to work, if they’ve recovered as much as possible, or if they’ve received more than 400 weeks of benefits, then their workers’ compensation payments will end. However, those with permanent disabilities could qualify for additional benefits. An experienced Weehawken workers’ compensation can help those with permanent disabilities explore their options for compensation.

Q:How is a personal injury claim different from a personal injury lawsuit?
A:Many victims are unsure what legal actions they should take to pursue fair compensation for their injuries. If you wish to hold the person responsible for your injuries liable, it is important to know the differences between a claim and a lawsuit.
Q:What is negligence?
A:Negligence is one of the key aspects of any personal injury case. Negligence occurs when a person or party does not act with the proper amount of care and caution that a reasonable person would use to prevent harm or injury to another individual, or when the person or party does something harmful that a careful and reasonable person would not have done in a similar situation.
Q:How important is negligence to my case?
A:Negligence is perhaps the most integral factor in an injury claim or lawsuit, and in order to fight for justice against the liable party (also called the defendant), you must first be able to prove their negligence and that it is the direct cause of your injuries.
