You don't dispute that the injury that you suffered in a recent New Jersey construction accident was relatively minor, all things considered. You have not suffered a permanent injury or disability and your injury is, thankfully, not life threatening. Yet, you are out of work. You are unable to earn an income and your medical bills are piling up. Will you have to bear this burden alone?
You May Be Able to Recover
You may qualify for New Jersey workers' compensation even if your injury is not permanent. New Jersey's workers' compensation requires that your injury keep you out of work for at least seven days, that you be getting active medical treatment, and that you be unable to work while you collect benefits. Then, you can recover a portion of your lost income and your medical expenses.
These benefits may be significant even if you are only out of work for a couple of months. They may help keep you solvent and out of bankruptcy. They may protect your family during a difficult time.
