Compensable vs. Non-Compensable Injuries in New Jersey

There are many reasons for an employer or its insurance carrier to deny a Workers’ Compensation claim. A claim may be denied if they believe that:

  • Your illness or injury did not occur at work.
  • You did not report the injury within the required time.
  • You did not file the claim in time.
  • Your injury was self-inflicted or that you refused to wear required protective gear.
  • You were under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
  • You engaged in so-called horseplay.
  • You did not obtain medical treatment.
  • Your injury was the result of a pre-existing condition.

Some of these assertions are difficult to prove and primarily represent a delaying tactic on the part of the insurance carrier. The hope is that the injured worker will give up, as the appeals process can be complicated. However, by working with a knowledgeable Passaic County Workers’ Compensation lawyer, injured workers who were denied benefits can often disprove assertions like these and obtain needed payments.
