    I work in a nursing home and I was hit by a resident,I was out of work for 8 days.I had to have xrays taking at my place of work for comp to pay for these xrays,,I was told there was nothing on these xrays and I only had a doctors note for the days out and those days were up,so I was told I had to come back.I went back the next day,I went to payroll and asked about getting paid by comp for the days I lost,I was told that she knew nothing about comp and had to find out by corp,I still dont know anything and this was a week ago.I don't know what to do or how to go about getting paid for being hurt on the job.Please Help! Thank You.

    If an injured worker is disabled for a period of more than seven days, he or she will be eligible to receive temporary disability benefits at a rate of 70% their average weekly wage, not to exceed the maximum rate.
    You should consider contacting the insurance carrier directly or file a claim with the New Jersey Division of Workers Compensation (http://www.nj.gov/labor/wc/filing.htm#)
    Proof of insurance coverage should be displayed in a prominent location at the place of business. If this information is not posted, you can obtain this information by writing to the Compensation Rating & Inspection Bureau at 60 Park Place, Newark, NJ 07102 or by visiting their web site at www.njcrib.com.
