Workers’ Compensation — A Quick Overview
The term “workers’ compensation” refers to a system of laws outlining specific benefits to which injured employees are entitled, and the procedures for obtaining such benefits. Every state has its own workers’ compensation laws.
Under the law in New Jersey as in most states, every business must have some form of workers’ compensation insurance to cover injured employees. Filing a workers’ compensation claim is similar to filing an insurance claim; it isn’t a lawsuit against an employer or a request for a handout, but rather a request for benefits that are due when an injury takes place at work.
If you have been injured at work, attorneys experienced in workers’ compensation law can explain the complexities of workers’ compensation (formerly known as “workman’s comp”) and help you secure the maximum benefits to which you are entitled.
