Workers’ Compensation law in New Jersey allows your employer to choose your doctor. In an emergency, you can see any doctor who is available—although you must still notify your employer of the accident as soon as possible. You can also choose your own doctor if your employer refuses care while the refusal to provide medical treatment is being challenged in court.
Workers’ Compensation does not provide compensation for pain and suffering. However, in some cases, you may be eligible to file a third-party claim against someone who was not your employer. For example, you may be able to sue a negligent property owner or engineer for compensation outside of the Workers’ Compensation system. Even if you were an employee, if someone other than your employer or co-workers caused your accident, we can help you pursue a lawsuit against that negligent party.
