    How to Handle a Workplace Injury

    There are three steps you must take if you’re injured at work or fall ill due to workplace exposure to something toxic:

    Report the Incident

    Immediately reporting an incident to your supervisor or manager, even if you are uncertain you sustained an injury, is critical when claiming workers’ comp benefits. The workers’ compensation process requires detailed documentation of the underlying incident. Because not all injuries or illnesses appear instantly and can take a period of time before they manifest, you must report all incidents as they occur to help future claims that result from them. 

    Visit a Doctor

    Unless the Federal Employees Compensation Act (FECA) covers you, allowing you to see a doctor of your choice, you must first see a doctor paid for by your employer. It is critical for your workers’ comp case to get a copy of that doctor’s report because all parties will rely on that report to determine your due compensation. The report is evidence that is a critical component of a successful case, and your workers’ compensation lawyer can counsel what additional documents you should obtain.

    Prepare Your Workers’ Compensation Claim

    You have reported the incident to your employer, visited a doctor, and obtained a doctor’s report. Now you are ready to file your workers’ compensation claim. Working with an experienced workers’ compensation attorney helps ensure that your claim is accurate and complies with the law, and that you are claiming all of the benefits you are due. 

    Workers’ compensation in New Jersey is a “no-fault” system, meaning that an injured employee is not required to sue the employer or prove that the employer was at fault or otherwise negligent to receive workers’ comp benefits. Your employer’s policy regarding “on-the-job” injuries is very important to be aware of and to follow the steps. Your Human Resources Department should have a copy of the policy readily available. 

    For help with these three crucial steps of the legal process of claiming workers’ comp benefits, call the workers’ compensation lawyers at the law offices of Stan Gregory at 609-281-5100. He’ll help you stand up to insurance companies and get the benefits you deserve.

    Workers’ Compensation Benefits in Lindenwold 

    These are the workers’ compensation benefits typically available in Lindenwold, NJ:

    Lost Wages

    Lost wages are available from the date an injured worker starts missing work to the date they return once cleared by a doctor. The goal of providing lost wages is to give an injured worker steady income while they are at home, recovering.  Weekly payments are equal to 70% of your average weekly earnings, not to exceed 75% of the Statewide Average Weekly Wage (SAWW), or fall below 20% of it.

    Medical Expenses

    In NJ, workers’ compensation covers the medical expenses a worker incurs due to their illness or injury. These expenses may include hospitalizations, medical procedures, surgeries, therapies, and prescription. Some procedures such as acupuncture, chiropractic, or physical therapy may be limited in the number of sessions, however, a worker can request additional sessions if necessary. The coverage window opens at the time of injury and closes when a doctor reports a full or maximum recovery.

    Temporary Partial Disability Benefits

    Some injured workers are able to work at reduced hours or perform “light duties” during recovery. Temporary partial disability helps cover the difference between their previous earnings and what they are making while recovering. This benefit reimburses an injured worker for two-thirds of the difference between previous earnings and current earnings.

    Temporary Total Disability Benefits

    Temporary total disability benefits are available for injured workers who cannot return to work until fully recovered, for a maximum of 400 weeks or when a doctor clears the worker to return to work. Injured workers can receive two-thirds of their regular income. Payments can begin as early as three days after being out of work due to a workplace injury or illness.

    Permanent Partial Disability Benefits

    If an injured worker is permanently disabled but can still work, permanent partial disability benefits may be available. Scheduled (set value) and unscheduled (no fixed value) disabilities are both covered under these benefits. Examples of scheduled disabilities include visual or hearing impairments or the loss of limbs. Examples of unscheduled disabilities, although more difficult to label, can include heart, lung, or back issues.

    Permanent Total Disability Benefits

    An injured worker who can no longer work due to their disability may be entitled to permanent disability benefits. This benefit may still be available if a worker can perform work in another capacity but can no longer perform their former job. Examples of a total disability can include loss of both arms or complete blindness.

    Death Benefits

    The dependents of an employee who dies due to a workplace injury can also receive workers’ comp benefits. The definition of “dependents” for the purposes of workers’ compensation can include many types of relationships in New Jersey. Lindenwold workers’ compensation lawyer Stan Gregory can help you determine if you are eligible for death benefits.

    Lindenwold Workers’ Compensation Coverage

    Most workers’ compensation claims involve injuries related to a single workplace incident. However, you can also get workers’ comp for injuries and illnesses resulting from prolonged, repetitive stress. Strain injuries can result from typing, standing, sitting, or heavy labor, while diseases such as cancers can result from exposure to harmful chemicals. This can be true even though these conditions and illnesses take time to develop and may not be traceable to any single accident or incident.

    Workers’ Compensation Questions

    Does Workers’ Comp Have a Limit?

    Yes, workers’ compensation benefits are limited to 400 weeks of payments, or to when a doctor clears you to return to work.

    What Happens if a Workers’ Comp Claim Only Partially Pays?

    You can and should contest that. In Lindenwold, an experienced workers’ compensation attorney can help you determine if you are entitled to more than the insurance company is paying. Stan Gregory will fight for your rights to receive the correct benefits. Call his office today at 609-281-5100.

    What Happens if My Employer Does Not Have Workers’ Comp Insurance?

In this case, to pursue receiving due compensation for your workplace injury/illness you may have to file a personal injury lawsuit. Personal Injury claims are processed under a different set of rules and laws, not under the workers’ compensation system.

    Can I Get Both Disability and Workers’ Comp?

    It is possible to receive both social security disability and workers’ compensation. If you are unable to work due to your injury, disability will cover you. However, if that injury was incurred in your workplace, you may also be entitled to workers’ compensation. Stan Gregory can help you apply for an get all of the benefits you deserve.
