Although you go to work every day to provide for yourself and your family, you probably never expect to suffer a debilitating injury on the job. But a serious work injury can disrupt your ability to cover bills and expenses for you and your family, while also requiring you to see extensive medical treatment and rehabilitation for your injuries. While the workers’ compensation system in New Jersey is intended to ensure that workers who suffer an injury on the job get help for medical and living expenses, many workers often have trouble getting their workers’ compensation claims swiftly paid by their employer or their employer’s workers’ comp insurer.

If your employer or its workers’ compensation insurer declines to pay you workers’ compensation benefits for a work injury, you can file a formal claim with the state workers’ compensation division. The workers’ compensation division will hold a hearing with you and your employer before a hearing officer; at the hearing, you and your employer can present evidence and witnesses. If the hearing officer rules in your favor, they will direct your employer to pay the workers’ comp benefits you are entitled to. If you receive an adverse decision at the hearing, you can pursue the administrative appeals process, and eventually, file suit in court to seek benefits.
Yes. In New Jersey, you have two years from the date that you were last paid workers’ comp benefits to file a request to reopen your workers’ comp claim. Requests to reopen workers’ comp claims are usually made when you find that you require additional medical treatment for your work injury. After two years following the last payment of benefits, your workers’ comp claim will be considered permanently closed.
