The New Jersey Division of Labor and Workforce Development governs the administration of Workers' Compensation in New Jersey. Employers are required to carry workers' compensation insurance and workers who have been injured while at work are entitled by law to certain benefits. Specifically, workers are entitled to temporary disability benefits, medical payments and may be entitled to benefits for permanent injuries. Typically, temporary disability benefits and medical payments are provided by your employer but they often fail to provide benefits for permanent injuries.
Depending on the nature and extent of your permanent injuries, as determined by medical professionals and the Court, you could be entitled to payment.
If you have injured while working, The Law Office of Alexandra Nieves-Martinez can help get you the compensation you deserve. Ms. Martinez is an experienced workers' compensation attorney who has represented injured workers and has defended businesses, public entities, and municipalities.
