Workers Compensation Washington Township




If you sustained a serious injury on the job or are diagnosed with an occupational illness, New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law provides benefits if an injury is reported within two years of the date of injury or the date of your last paycheck. An occupational illness must be reported within two years of the date you became aware of the illness.

Your claim is initiated when your employer submits your report of injury or occupational illness to their workmen’s compensation carrier for its consideration.

If approved, your employer or the insurance company will pay for medical treatment which is reasonable and necessary, including physician visits, prescriptions, physical therapy, surgery, etc. You are also eligible for a percentage of your lost wages, subject to minimum and maximum restrictions.
