New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Claims

New Jersey workers’ compensation claims may be filed when a worker has been injured at work or when the employee is sick because of a work-related condition. Workers’ compensation benefits are designed to make up for the wages an employee loses while he is recovering from his injury or illness, and to provide medical care for these conditions to ensure a speedy recovery. In New Jersey, all employers must have workers’ compensation insurance to provide benefits if their workers are injured in workplace accidents. In order to receive these benefits, a worker who has an occupational injury or illness must submit a claim for workers’ compensation benefits to the New Jersey Division of Workers’ Compensation.
