Paterson Workers’ Compensation Court for Injured Workers in Passaic County, New Jersey

Employers and insurance companies that contest Workers’ Compensation claims in NJ often argue that the employee’s medical bills, as well as lost wages due to missed time from work, stem from a preexisting injury. In other words: The employer argues that the worker was already hurt before the workplace accident and that the insurance provider should not be on the hook for covering medical bills and related expenses to treat the preexisting injury.
