WHAT IS WORKERS’ COMPENSATION

Workers’ compensation is a “no fault” insurance program that provides the following benefits to employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses.

  • Medical Benefits
  • Temporary Total Benefits
  • Permanent Partial Benefits
  • Permanent Total Benefits

It also provides death benefits to dependents of workers who have died as a result of their employment.

An injured employee will receive benefits regardless of who was at fault. In exchange for these benefits, the worker cannot bring a civil action against the employer for pain and suffering or other damages, except in cases of intentional acts.

The benefits under Workers’ Comp include weekly payments based on a percentage of the employee’s average weekly wage for temporary total disability, partial disability, permanent and total disability and permanent loss of function and disfigurement. Workers’ Comp also covers medical expenses for treatment that is reasonable, necessary and related to the industrial injury and vocational rehabilitation services.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU ARE INJURED IN NEW JERSEY

You should notify your employer as soon as possible.   The notice may be given to your supervisor, personnel office, or anyone in authority at your place of business.  Notice does not have to be in writing. If you need medical treatment, a request should be made to your employer as soon as possible.  Under the NJ workers’ compensation law, the employer and/or their insurance carrier can select the physician(s)  to treat injured workers for work related injuries.  You will need the help of our experienced team of Worker’s Compensation at The Law Office of Karim Arzadi.

EMPLOYER’S RESPONSIBILITY AFTER AN INJURY

Once an accident is reported to an employer, they should notify their insurance carrier immediately so that a First Report of Injury can be filed with the State.

The employer’s WC insurance carrier will evaluate the claim and determine if it’s compensable under the WC law. They will contact the injured worker, the employer and the medical provider to make this assessment. If the claim is accepted, they will direct the injured worker to an authorized medical provider for treatment.  If time out of work extends beyond 7 days, they will also provide the injured worker temporary disability benefits during the period of rehabilitation.

Within 26 weeks after the worker returns to work or reaches maximum medical improvement, the insurance carrier is required to submit another form to the Division called the Subsequent Report of Injury. A copy of this form is sent to the worker for their review.
