What Are Your Legal Options for Compensation After Being Injured on the Job as a Factory Worker in New Jersey?
After being hurt at work as a factory worker, you may have several options for recovering compensation and other financial benefits for your injuries. First, you may be entitled to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. In New Jersey, the workers’ compensation system offers benefits to injured employees that include:
- Medical benefits – Covers the cost of reasonable and necessary medical treatment and rehabilitation of work injuries or occupational illnesses, as well as ongoing pain management of chronic injuries
- Temporary disability benefits – Pays up to 70 percent of a workers’ average weekly wage for time they miss from work due to a work injury or occupational illness
- Permanent partial disability benefits – Provides financial payments for a permanent impairment that does not render a worker totally disabled from gainful employment; payments are based on the and severity of impairment
- Permanent total disability benefits – Pays continued partial wage replacement benefits after temporary benefits are exhausted, so long as a worker remains incapable of returning to the workforce due their injury or illness
In addition, if your work injury was caused by a third-party’s negligence or legal fault, such as if you were injured by defective machinery, you may have the option of filing a personal injury claim against that third party to recover compensation for your:
- Medical expenses to treat injuries and costs of long-term medical and personal care for permanent disabilities
- Full reimbursement of ongoing and future losses of wages or income, as well as loss of employment benefits
- Physical pain and distress
- Emotional trauma or suffering
- Lost enjoyment and quality of life caused by disability or visible, permanent scarring or disfigurement

New Jersey Factory Worker Injury Lawyers Answer Frequently Asked Questions about Factory and Plant Worker Injuries in New Jersey
What is workers’ compensation?
What is covered under workers’ compensation?
What workers’ compensation benefits are available?
What should I do after a work accident in order to pursue workers’ compensation?
Can I sue an employer or another employee for my workplace accident?
Under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation law, your legal claims against your employer are normally limited to filing a workers’ comp claim. However, the benefit of a workers’ compensation claim is that you do not need to prove that your employer had any fault for causing your work injury. But if a third party’s negligence was responsible for causing your work injury, you can also file a personal injury claim against that third party in addition to recovering workers’ compensation benefits from your employer. DiTomaso Law can help you pursue all your legal options to maximize your financial recovery after suffering a factory/plant worker injury.
In New Jersey, you must notify your employer of your work injury within 90 days to receive workers’ compensation benefits. However, to maximize your benefits from the date of your injury, you should notify your employer as soon as possible. If you need to file a formal workers’ compensation claim petition to recover benefits, you have two years from the date of your injury or the last payment of workers’ comp benefits to file. Finally, if you have a third-party personal injury claim for your work injury, you have two years from the date of the work accident to file a lawsuit.
