Workers’ Compensation Law in Camden County, NJ

Nearly every worker who performs any services for wages within the State of New Jersey is covered by Workers’ Compensation. This means that any worker who is injured on the job or who suffers an illness that can be traced back to their job is entitled to benefits.

The eligibility requirements for workers’ compensation are straightforward:

  • The injured worker must be an employee, not an independent contractor
  • The injured worker needs to have suffered an injury “arising out of employment.” This means that the injury was suffered while performing a job-related duty.

Keep in mind that New Jersey is a no-fault state. This means that injured workers are entitled to workers’ compensation even if they were responsible for the accident that caused their injuries. Of course, no-fault coverage also protects employers because workers agree in advance to not sue the employer for negligence.

Winning Your Workers’ Compensation Claim in Camden County

You deserve maximum compensation for your injuries. An attorney can make sure that your employer does not accidentally miscalculate your wage benefits in a workers’ compensation claim. An attorney can also advise you about whether to sign any documents in your workers’ compensation case. Remember that your employer can potentially use these documents against you if the case proceeds to court.

Additionally, you should know that an injured worker in New Jersey has just 120 days to report the injury. If the injured worker misses this deadline, they might lose the ability to file a workers’ compensation claim. Moreover, the earlier you file a workers’ compensation claim, the quicker you can start receiving benefits and reimbursement for necessary medical treatment.
