  • Personalized attention: Choose a lawyer who offers personalized attention and will listen to your needs with understanding and empathy. 
  • Proven results: A proven track record of successful case resolutions speaks volumes about a lawyer’s competence and skill.

Understanding New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Laws

Understanding New Jersey workers’ compensation laws is necessary for employers and employees. Unfortunately, the jargon used in these laws can be confusing. At Meirowitz & Wasserberg, we confirm our clients fully understand their rights and how to protect themselves. We prioritize educating clients about New Jersey laws and their rights.

Relevance of New Jersey Workers’ Comp Laws in Accident Cases

In New Jersey, workers’ compensation laws protect employees injured or sickened by work-related activities.
New Jersey requires all employers to carry workers’ compensation insurance, and the state follows a “no-fault” rule for workers’ compensation claims.

New Jersey workers’ compensation laws ensure that employees injured at work receive benefits without having to prove their employers’ negligence. Even if injured workers cause their own injuries, they can still collect workers’ compensation benefits.

However, this also means that employees generally cannot sue their employers for work-related injuries.

New Jersey Workers' Compensation Laws Explained

New Jersey Statutes Title 34 Labor and Workers’ Compensation is the Garden State’s workers’ compensation law. Some critical aspects include the following:

  • Report the injury: Workers must immediately report any work-related injury or illness to their employer. The employer is then responsible for filing a workers’ compensation claim on behalf of the employee.
  • Medical benefits: Injured employees are entitled to receive necessary and reasonable medical treatment covered under workers’ compensation.
  • Temporary total disability benefits: Employees who cannot work for more than seven days may be eligible for temporary total disability benefits, which generally cover 70 percent of their average weekly wage.
  • Permanent partial benefits: If an employee sustains a permanent disability but can still work, they might be eligible for permanent partial benefits.
