How to File a Workers’ Compensation Claim
In New Jersey, the law requires that every business carries some form of insurance which helps compensate employees who get injured while on the job. Workers’ Compensation was structured to provide you with the financial assistance that you need and deserve while you are unable to work during your recovery.
Filing a workers’ compensation claim is not very different from filing an insurance claim. Have you sustained damages while on a job? Our employment attorney is on hand to brief you on the intricacies inherent in workers’ compensation entitlements and also, assist you in getting the maximum amount that you are entitled to.
Regardless of how seemingly safe, most jobs expose employees situations and circumstances that risk resulting in an injury. It may be argued that construction work is more hazardous than an office job, yet even a large proportion of “desk” employees could develop injuries that impede their work and quality of life, such as carpal tunnel syndrome.
The most common occupational injuries include strains and sprains, especially in the legs and at the back. People who do manual labor and those working in health care (i.e. lifting patients) are more prone to injuries than those in other professions. There is a wide range of severity in workplace injuries, from a simple stress fracture to an amputation injury from a catastrophic accident.
Kinds of Benefits
Your potential entitlements as a worker that is injured while on the job are:
- Lump sum payments
- Defrayment of medical bills (past & future)
- Permanent or Temporary disability payment
- Weekly paychecks
Have you sustained an injury in the workplace due to a workplace accident? If yes, then it is your right to obtain what you are entitled to. Albeit, getting your workers’ compensation entitlements benefits could be quite intimidating, if not frustrating. A small error in your application could result in the denial of your workers’ compensation, keeping you out of your work and without any source of support.
