The Mark Law Firm helps employees who are injured at work.
One of the main questions and injured employee often has is, “Will my injury be covered by workers’ compensation?” The answer is typically simple. Did the injury arise out of the course and scope of your employment? If you were working, and your injury occurred while working for the benefit of the employer, your claim should be covered under the workers’ compensation statute.
Workers’ compensation in the state of New Jersey is a “no-fault” statute, which means it does not matter who caused your injury. What does matter is whether your injury was caused because of your work or during the course and scope of your employment.
