What happens if you want to file a claim with Workers’ Comp New Jersey?
The Department of Labor outlines the first step following an on-the-job injury: “In cases of dispute between an injured worker and the employer and/or insurance carrier over entitlement to benefits, the worker may file either a formal Claim Petition or an Application for an Informal Hearing with the Division of Workers’ Compensation. Upon filing, the case will be assigned to a judge and a district office based upon the county of residence of the injured worker, or if the worker lives out of state, the county where the employer is located.”
The New Jersey Department of Labor recommends you get legal representation. It is “not required but it is recommended.” That is because the nuances of Workers’ Comp New Jersey are not intended to be clear. There are technicalities that an employer may seize on, leveraging loopholes to take advantage of injured employees. Or, without the support of an experienced attorney, it can be tempting for employees to settle for a paltry lump sum.

If the disability continues to be treated without a definitive diagnosis and/or prognosis, prompt settlement may not be prudent. When and if to settle is your decision to make, but BEWARE.
