New Jersey law provides benefits for employees and workers who sustain an injury or disease on the job. The term injury is defined broadly and includes traumatic injuries to all body systems, as well as occupational illnesses that occur over a period of time. A traumatic injury is the type you can see or feel happen suddenly, such as a fall down a steps or a pop in the back when lifting. An occupational injury or disease happens over time through day in and day out exposure to elements or repetitive motions. Once a worker is injured on the job, a worker is entitled to receive treatment, lost wages, and compensation for permanent injury.
