Q Can I file a New Jersey Workers Compensation claim if I am injured while working on a construction site?
AIf you are injured while working on a construction site you absolutely have the right to file a New Jersey Workers Compensation claim. You can file a claim even if the accident or exposure is your fault. This claim is filed against your employer's Workers Compensation Insurance Carrier. You will be entitled to the same benefits that exist in any other work related injury claim. These benefits include the right to payment of medical bills, the right to pay for your time out of work and, if you never fully recover from your injury, the right to a cash payment at the end of your case.
