Work-related accidents can lead to workers' compensation claims

Workers who are injured on the job have specific rights that they should understand before they ever face an injury. Knowing that you have the right to workers' compensation if you are involved in a work-related accident or have a cumulative trauma injury that is attributed to the duties of your job is of the most important things for you to realize. This is because in addition to possible cash benefits, the workers' compensation program covers your medical bills from the work injury.

We know that you might not know where to start when filing for workers' compensation benefits. All employers are required to have a poster or information about the program displayed in the workplace and readily available to all workers. This can give you some of the specifics of the program.

You need to file a report with your employer so that there is a record of the incident that led to the injury. If you have a cumulative trauma injury, you still need to alert the employer to the issue. Also, make sure that you seek medical care for your injury, as this links the injury to your employment.

Another thing that workers' compensation covers is partial disability payments. Cash benefits aren't available in every case, but you may be eligible if you aren't able to return to work right away. The benefits provide you with an income until you are healed enough to return to work.

While workers' compensation is meant to protect New Jersey workers, there are times when incorrect decisions regarding benefits are made. It might be possible to appeal the decision if you get turned down.
