Injured Workers Have the Right to Obtain Workers’ Compensation

Under the Workers’ Compensation Act, injured workers have the right to apply for workers’ compensation benefits. New Jersey employers are required to have workers’ compensation coverage or be self-insured. Otherwise, they may face civil penalties.

When workplace injuries occur, employers are responsible for covering the injured worker’s medical costs, temporary disability, and permanent disability. Companies cannot fire or retaliate against employees who file a workers’ compensation claim.

Potential Risks Kings Food Markets Workers Face

Kings Food Markets workers face numerous risks while on the job. Those include, but are not limited to:

Going Back to Work After an On-the-Job Injury

Kings Food Markets employees who take time off work due to their injuries require a doctor’s approval to resume employment. If your primary physician determines you have recovered and clears you to return to work, you must start working again. The doctor will decide whether you can return in a part-time or full-time capacity and specify any light-duty restrictions.

If you do not go back to work after your doctor’s approval, you could lose your right to receive workers’ compensation benefits. However, you also have the right to challenge the doctor’s decision in some cases. For example, the insurance company’s doctor may urge you to return to work before you have recovered so that they do not have to continue paying temporary disability benefits.

Steps to Take After a Work Injury at Kings Food Markets

If you suffer a work injury while working at Kings Food Markets, notify your supervisor or manager immediately. Do not wait until the end of your shift. If the manager is unavailable, find someone else in a position of authority, such as an assistant manager or human resources staff.

Maintain detailed notes of the time, date, and location of the work injury, along with what injuries you sustained and to whom you reported the accident. Be sure to seek medical treatment. In some cases, you may need emergency care.

Your employer may require you to see a company physician. If you choose not to, your workers’ compensation claim may be denied.

Hold on to all your medical records related to your care, including physical therapy, surgery, doctor’s appointments, and more. The documents can serve as important evidence showing the nature and extent of your injuries.

Fill out the necessary accident reports and workers’ compensation forms. Be sure to include your full name, job title at Kings Food Markets, details about the work injury, and information about anyone else involved in the accident.

Statute of Limitations for Workers’ Compensation Claims

The statute of limitations, or deadline, for filing a New Jersey workers’ compensation claim is two years from when the work injury occurred. Failing to file a claim within this timeframe can mean a worker loses their right to obtain benefits. The New Jersey workers’ compensation attorneys at the Todd J. Leonard Law Firm can help Kings Food Markets employees ensure they complete all their paperwork on time.
