Workers’ Compensation FAQs

Workers’ compensation is the method under New Jersey law of providing benefits to an employee or in some cases, an employee’s dependent or dependents, when an employee is hurt or dies in an accident or by an occupational disease arising out of and in the course of employment. Concepts such as fault or negligence are not considered as far as an employee’s entitled to benefits. Generally speaking, an employee is entitled to three benefits in workers’ compensation; medical treatment, temporary disability benefits, and permanency. These benefits are discussed in greater detail in this brochure.

When an employee is injured at work, there are usually several questions that immediately come to mind. An injured worker often wonders; “If I can’t work, what will I do for money?” or “Who will pay my medical bills?” or “Can I lose my job if I make a claim for benefits?” or “What if my injuries are permanent?”

The information contained in this brochure is designed to give you some answers to basic questions concerning workers’ compensation. It is not designed to answer every question or address every situation which may arise in the course of an accident or injury and its aftermath. It is merely a guide to address what experience has shown us to be an employee’s immediate concerns. It is not meant to be a substitute for advice or advocacy from an experienced Workers’ Compensation attorney.
