Available-as-Part-of-a-Workers-Compensation-Claim.jpg

In New Jersey, when you have incurred a work-related injury, you have a right to pursue compensation for your losses? What types of benefits are available through a workers' compensation claim? Will workers' compensation pay for physical therapy or rehabilitation? What if you need pain medication or a surgical procedure? What it you are unable to return to your old job, or to work at all?

At the Law Offices of Mallon & Tranger, we provide comprehensive counsel to people who have suffered any type of injury on the job. If you have any concerns or questions about your rights after being hurt at work, contact our office by e-mail or call us at 732-702-0333 (toll free at ). Your first consultation is free.

BENEFITS FOR LOST INCOME

You are entitled to recover compensation to cover lost wages. The amount of benefits you receive will depend on two factors: whether your disability is total or partial, and whether or not the injury is temporary or permanent. For most people seeking workers' compensation benefits, the injury is temporary, and the benefits are designed only to replace income until the claimant can return to work.

To qualify for permanent disability benefits, it's not necessary to prove that you are unable to work all, but only that you are unable to return to your job or a similar one. If the workers' compensation judge determines that you are totally disabled, you will be eligible for the maximum benefit. If, however, your disability is partial, you'll receive a percentage of the benefits available, based on the degree of your disability.

COMPENSATION FOR MEDICAL CARE

Worker's compensation also covers all "reasonable and necessary" medical expenses required because of a work injury. That includes hospital and urgent care treatment, as well as doctor visits, prescriptions and any necessary surgical procedures. Your employer will typically require that you be treated by a doctor the company has chosen, but you can always seek an opinion and treatment from your own physician.

Depending on the circumstances of your injury, you may also be eligible for compensation for special procedures, such as pain therapy or psychological counseling. Worker's compensation also covers rehabilitation and physical therapy.

DEATH BENEFITS

In New Jersey, surviving family members may recover workers' compensation benefits if a loved one is killed on the job.
