Workers’ Compensation Law in New Jersey
Workers’ compensation law ensures that an injured worker gets relief for medical bills, vocational training, and any other expenses related to their recovery. Workers who miss more than seven days of work are entitled to 70 percent of their weekly pay with a limit of $921 as of 2019.
Benefits for West New York workers’ compensation may include:
- Medical payments
- Compensation 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
Workers stop receiving benefits when they can return to work or have physically recovered as much as possible. Additionally, an injured worker will stop receiving benefits after receiving benefits for 400 weeks. If a person still cannot go back to work after they are no longer eligible for benefits, they have the option to apply for permanent disability. Our workers’ comp lawyer can help you understand if you qualify for permanent disability.

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.
