Workers' Compensation Attorney Protecting Workers' Rights Since 1978

East Brunswick Workers’ Compensation Lawyer

Defending Your Rights as an Employee

A job-related injury can leave you struggling to survive, unable to work and earn a living. The New Jersey workers’ compensation system is a “no-fault” insurance program that provides benefits to employees who suffer a job-related injury or illness.

The benefits provided under the system include:

  • Medical care and treatment
  • Temporary total benefits
  • Permanent partial benefits
  • Permanent total benefits

The amount in benefits is only a portion of your wages and is often far less than you and your family need to survive. In many work-related accidents, a third party may hold responsibility for what occurred, which allows you to file a lawsuit against that party and recover far more in damages. The first step is a full evaluation of the facts in your case.

Denied or Delayed Claims

While the system should function smoothly and your benefits should be forthcoming, in many cases, an injured worker can face a denial of benefits, or a long delay when the employer chooses to dispute a valid claim.

Can I Sue For Emotional Distress?

If your job is causing you to be emotionally distressed, you may consider filing a claim to help compensate for this distress. If your work stress is impacting your mental state and your life outside of working hours, it may be in your best interest to pursue a claim.

Workers’ Compensation Benefits in New Jersey: Your Rights

By law, the workers’ compensation insurance company has 60 days in which to process your payment, and if a delay occurs, you are entitled to interest on any delayed payments. It is not uncommon for a payment to be delayed due to requests for more documentation.

While the process should be simple, most people find filing a claim to be a complicated process, as full documentation must be submitted, especially in cases of serious injuries that will require many months, years, or a lifetime of care.

The statute of limitations allows you two years in which to file a workers’ compensation claim, an important point in cases involving toxic exposure. In these cases, the clock is ticking from the time the illness or condition is discovered.
