Compensación Para Trabajadores en N.J. Reconoce Dos Tipos de Heridas
It is important to understand that there are two types of work injuries recognized under New Jersey workers' compensation law. The first, specific accident, is when an injury is sustained at a particular moment, for example, if you fall down the stairs at your job and break your leg as a result. That injury can be recorded at a specific time, place, and date.
The second, an occupational exposure claim, is the result of repetitive motion or exposure over a long period of time, not one that occurs on a specific date such as factory workers exposed to chemicals or fumes on the job that are later diagnosed with lung disease as a result.
