Understanding Workers Compensation Laws

The Newark workers comp attorneys of Kirsch, Gelband & Stone recognize the importance of being familiar with the laws surrounding workers compensation. Victims of workplace injuries have statutory rights and it’s important that you understand them.

Compensation laws have been established to ensure that employees who are injured during work are provided with a certain amount of compensation for those work-related injuries or illnesses.

Injured workers in “admitted” work-related accidents or illnesses are statutorily entitled to authorized medical treatment, temporary disability for the period of time they’re out of work, and a permanency award for permanent functional injury.

Compensation laws also provide specific benefits for the dependents of workers who die because of work-related illnesses, or death resulting from serious injury.
