Workers’ compensation in the State of New Jersey is elective. This means that employers are not legally obligated to provide workers’ compensation insurance for their employees. They may also offer workers’ compensation through a private insurance carrier or self-insure as well.
Special Employment Situations
New Jersey’s Workers’ Compensation Act applies to those who are employed in the agricultural field, and although compensation is technically elective, it is still compulsory. Domestic workers are also covered in the same manner as employees in any other profession. The laws protecting employees also extend across state lines. If you have been injured during work, even across state lines, contact the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C.
Medical Benefits & Choice Physician
Medical benefits are part of the workers’ compensation benefits provided to employees as well. These benefits have no time or monetary limit due to the nature of the work-related injury. Employers select a physician who will oversee and provide care during recovery from an injury that occurred in the workplace. At the Law Offices of Vincent J. Ciecka, P.C., our attorneys will fight for your legal right to workers’ compensation in Camden County, ensuring that you will receive the maximum benefit available to you due to your work-related injury.
Disability Benefits Provided
Benefits for both Temporary Total Disability or Permanent Total Disability are based on a percentage of the worker’s wages and are subject to minimum and maximum weekly amounts.

For Permanent Total Disability, benefits can extend for the duration of the disability and sometimes even for the rest of your life.
Death Benefits Provided
In the case of an employee’s death while at work, benefits are available to both the employee’s spouse and children.
