Accidents can happen anywhere, including the workplace. Numerous factors can contribute to a workplace accident, such as overexertion, hazardous materials, and slip and falls. Injuries sustained in a workplace accident can be not only painful but costly. An accident on the job can leave you unable to work and without income. The good news? Workers’ Compensation protects workers against the hardships that workplace accidents cause.
All 50 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. territories have Workers’ Compensation laws. In New Jersey, every employer is required to provide Workers’ Compensation insurance coverage to all employees. Depending upon the state you reside, there are certain benefits that you could qualify for if you are injured at work. In New Jersey, injured workers are generally entitled to medical benefits, disability benefits (temporary and permanent), and death benefits.
Eligibility for Workers’ Compensation benefits begins the first day of employment and is available to all employees. Whether you are in a probationary period or just started a new job, and regardless if you work full-time, part-time, or seasonal, you are eligible for Workers’ Compensation benefits if you are injured on the job.
In order to receive benefits, you must file a Workers’ Compensation claim. To get the most out of your Workers’ Compensation claim, there are important things you should know.
