All About Workers’ Compensation Benefits.

Accidents happen in work place- due to several reasons. While in some instances the employee may face an accident due to his or her own fault and sometimes also because of some faults on the part of the employer. These accidents can often become serious enough to injure a person temporarily or permanently, thus disabling the person to carry on with his or her daily work that he or she does for living. Since these personal injury cases can affect a person personally and economically, the New Jersey state law has made provisions for the victim of such an accident to receive a workers’ compensation for the personal injury New Jersey accident that he or she has suffered. However; people often get confused as to how much benefits they will be able to receive from the compensation amount and this is exactly what will be discussed in this article.

Severity of injury:

It is only after checking the nature and severity of the injury and the loss that the person has suffered from due to the occurrence of the accident, that the court comes to a decision about the compensation amount. Normally the compensation for work place personal injury cases are made on a weekly basis and it is the insurer company of the employer who becomes liable to pay the compensation for the injury to the victim. Depending on the nature and severity of injury, disabilities that occur as a result of personal injury New Jersey accidents are- temporary partial disability, permanent partial disability, temporary total disability and permanent total disability.

Types of compensations:

Personal injury New Jersey cases which occur within the work place of a person are eligible for getting compensated. Ranging from getting compensations with regard to the daily or weekly wage of a person to the medical expanses, the victim of such an accident becomes eligible to claim for all sorts of compensation, depending on the nature of the injury he or she has incurred. Compensations for these cases are normally paid out in four ways- weekly compensation, payment of medical bills, vocational rehabilitation and permanent impairment benefits. Weekly benefits or compensations are provided to employees depending on their average weekly wage (AWW). While the compensation is 2/3rd of the amount or 60% of the total average weekly wage of the person (which also includes the overtime wage) for permanent disability. However; for a temporary disability, the percentage of compensation goes down, as the court calculates the compensation amount by reducing the total AWW of the victim.
