Workers’ compensation (sometimes referred to as “workmans’ compensation”, “employment compensation”, or “workers’ comp”) provides workers with compensation when they are injured at work, while performing work offsite, or while engaged in a work-related activity.
The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act provides workers with compensation for wage loss, medical expenses and permanent disability if you sustained a work related injury or illness. Workers’ compensation is a “no fault” insurance program that provides benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses. Since workers’ compensation law is a “no fault” statute, the employee does not have to prove that their employer was at fault. Benefits that an employee may be entitled to include:
Temporary Total Benefits
Permanent Partial Benefits
Permanent Total Benefits
The New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Statute also provides death benefits to dependents of workers who have died as a result of their employment.
