NJ Workers Compensation Lawyers
If you have a work-related injury, medical or psychiatric condition from a specific workplace incident or one that has developed over time from repetitive work or exposure, you may be eligible for workers’ compensation, which includes medical treatment, temporary pay benefits, and potentially an award for permanent disability.

Asserting and Protecting Your Rights
You cannot be fired for filing a workers’ compensation claim or seeking benefits. It is an administrative process, not a lawsuit against your employer. Even if you were at fault for the injury (except under rare circumstances), you are covered by your employer’s workers’ compensation insurance. All employers in New Jersey must be covered by workers’ compensation insurance or have a self insurance plan in place.
Generally, you are entitled to free medical treatment through authorized medical providers, weekly wage loss benefits (70 percent of your average weekly wage to a maximum set amount) while you are receiving that authorized treatment, and likely an award for permanent disability.
Important Note: Do not use your own medical providers! New Jersey law provides that your employer or its workers’ compensation insurance company has the right to direct your treatment through its authorized medical providers. Failure to utilize authorized treatment will likely result in you being personally responsible for payment for any unauthorized medical treatment.
