The New Jersey Workers' Compensation Act governs work-related injury claims in New Jersey. Under state law, an employee is obligated to notify his or her employer of any injury which occurs on the job within 90 days from the date of the injury or accident. All New Jersey employers have accident reports, which you should fill out immediately after your injury.
Unfortunately, this is only the first step in what can be a long and complex process to obtain workers' compensation.
Worried About Proper Medical Treatment?
In New Jersey, employers are allowed to choose which physician will examine you following an on-the-job injury. However, the doctor you see must be competent and able to provide you with the care you need. If you were denied proper medical treatment by your employer, a workers' compensation lawyer at our New Jersey practice can investigate your case and help you take appropriate legal action.
