Essex County is located in northeast New Jersey, the state’s third-most populated county. Essex County is home to Newark, New Jersey’s largest city by both land area and population. Originally established in 1675 as part of East Jersey, today Essex County has a mix of suburban communities along with more developed, urban communities approaching New York City. The urban neighborhoods of Essex County have undergone rapid redevelopment over the past couple of decades due to a booming local economy and a drive for more affordable housing with proximity to New York City.
New Jersey workers’ compensation provides partial wage replacement if you miss a minimum amount of time from work. Typically, you will only receive a percentage of your average weekly wage, calculated based on your earnings over the 26 weeks prior to your work injury. This amount is subject to a maximum cap published annually by the state.
It is critical that you get examined by a doctor after you’ve suffered a work injury. Under New Jersey’s workers’ compensation system, your employer can require that you be treated by an approved doctor for your medical treatments to be covered by workers’ compensation (with an exception for emergency medical treatment). If you wait too long to get examined by a doctor, your employer may argue that you aren’t actually injured and demand that you return to work, or argue that you aren’t as seriously injured as you claim.
