The Time Limits for Reporting an Injury On The Job in New Jersey

Injuries on the job in New Jersey that involve a traumatic or specific accident must be reported to your employer and to the workers’ compensation insurance company within 90 days of the date when they occur. Neglecting to report within 90 days makes it much more difficult for you to obtain benefits.

Be aware that any workers’ comp claim must be filed before 2 years have passed from the date of the accident or the last authorized medical care provided, which is any treatment provided by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier. Of special note is that you only have 48 hours to report a hernia that you believe resulted from tasks at your job.

You need to act quickly to begin the processes related to injuries in the workplace and workers’ compensation. By speaking with an attorney immediately, you will gain from guidance and knowledge of the relevant procedures, including gathering of evidence for your case and pertinent deadlines.
