Injured workers depend on the financial benefits they collect from workers' compensation. This money replaces wages and covers medical expenses, which is crucial in helping you recover from an accident and cope with your injuries. As such, it can be upsetting to think about these benefits coming to an end.
After a workplace accident in New Jersey, most employees will be able to collect workers' compensation benefits for both medical care and out of work time. Furthermore, a monetary award is likely for injuries sustained.
When considering a profession, you probably do not give much thought to safety. If you are like most people in New Jersey, you look for what pays well and what is available. However, being safety minded is a good thing, and knowing that you are entering a highly dangerous industry or an industry where injuries are prevalent prepares you for the work and enables you to understand the risks and know more about your rights should you get hurt.
