New Jersey Disability Attorneys
Under the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Law, employees are entitled to receive certain benefits [such as cash, loss of wages, medical and career rehabilitation, etc.] when they suffer an occupational disease or accidental personal injury arising out of and in the course of employment.
In this context, a disability is incapacity to perform tasks required to perform the tasks required on the job, or a physical impairment that is incapacitating. Under federal law, to qualify for Social Security benefits, a disability is defined as a “medically ascertainable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or endures for a stated period, and an inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity due to the impairment.”
