Many times employers fail or refuse to report worker’s compensation claims. Your employer is required to display the name of their workers’ compensation insurance company and the coverage provided in a place where employees can see it at the workplace. Once you have the name of the insurance company you should contact them to report a claim.
If you cannot find the name of the insurance company at your workplace, you can write to the Compensation Rating & Inspection Bureau at 60 Park Place, Newark, NJ 07102 or, you can visit their web site at www.njcrib.com. The longer the claim remains unreported the longer and harder it will be to obtain workers compensation authorized medical treatment and temporary payment benefits. To avoid delays you should contact a N.J. Worker’s Compensation attorney.
