Who Is Covered By Workers’ Compensation?

Workers' compensation is a no-fault insurance program that provides benefits to injured workers regardless of who caused the accident. This means that if you get injured while working, your employer must pay you money even if he didn't cause the accident. You do not have any right to sue him for pain and suffering or anything else. Workers’ compensation laws require employers to provide workers with safe working conditions. Employees must follow safety rules and procedures when performing work duties. Workers’ compensation laws protect those who suffer an injury while working. Injuries include:

  • Musculoskeletal injuries (joints, back, neck, etc.)
  • Mental health issues (depression, anxiety)
  • Physical trauma (cuts, bruises, broken bones, concussions, etc.)
  • Chemical exposure (asbestos, lead paint, etc.)
  • Other types of physical harm (heat stroke, burns, electrocution, etc.)

If you were hurt on the job, you could be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. These benefits are designed to make sure you receive prompt treatment for your injuries and that you will recover from them as quickly as possible. The amount of money you receive depends on several factors, such as the type of injury you suffered, whether it was accidental, and what kind of medical care you need.

Workers’ Compensation Claims

Workers' compensation lawyers can help you get money for medical bills and other costs related to an accident at work. You might also qualify for disability payments if you're disabled by your injury. If your employer retaliates against you for filing a workers' compensation claim, you may be able to recover damages under NJ's whistleblower statute.
