What Benefits Are Available To Healthcare Workers From The NJ Workers’ Compensation System?

A healthcare worker who suffers a work-related injury or illness (including mental illness or severe emotional distress) may be entitled to file a claim for workers’ compensation benefits. Under the New Jersey workers’ compensation system, a healthcare worker does not need to prove that their employer was negligent or bears any legal fault for causing the workers’ injury or illness. Instead, the worker only needs to show that their injury or illness arose in the course and scope of their employment. Benefits available through NJ workers’ comp include:

  • Medical benefits that cover the cost of all reasonable and necessary treatment, rehabilitation, and therapy for a work injury or occupational illness
  • Temporary disability benefits, which pay a portion of a workers’ average weekly wage for days that the worker misses work due to a work-related injury or illness
  • Permanent partial disability benefits, which provide financial payments based on the type and severity of a permanent impairment of a body part or bodily function, when the worker can still work with the impairment
  • Permanent total disability benefits, which continues wage replacement after a worker reaches maximum medical improvement for as long as the worker remains unable to return to the workforce
  • Death benefits, which are available when a worker’s death is caused by a work injury or occupational illness, and provides financial payments to surviving dependents and contribution toward funeral/burial expenses
