In New Jersey, a worker who is injured in the course of work is entitled to help. It is not only fair it is the law of the State. Employers can face significant penalties for failing to provide the benefit pursuant to New Jersey’s statutes and regulations. Employees and employers have rights. Workers who suffer work injuries are to receive four basic workers’ compensation benefits: weekly disability benefits for wages lost, payment of related medical bills, help in returning to work, and an award for permanent loss of function of a part of the body. However, the reality is that there are a variety of issues over which conflict can develop like the amount of the benefits due, the duration of entitlement to benefits, returning to work, and whether a function of the body is permanently lost, to name but a few. The attorneys at Radom & Wetter have a thorough command of the law and the process.
