Volunteer Firefighter and Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) are one of the categories of volunteers covered by New Jersey Workers’ Compensation law.
In order to qualify for New Jersey Workers’ Compensation benefits, the volunteer firefighter or EMT must sustain personal injuries while “in the line of duty” and “doing public duty” pursuant to New Jersey statutory law. This broad language affords the volunteers workers’ compensation benefits for injuries sustained in many different contexts.
So long as the volunteer is injured in furtherance of their volunteer duties, it is highly probable they are entitled to workers’ compensation benefits including medical treatment, temporary disability benefits along with a permanency award for any permanent function loss arising for the volunteer-related injury.
The law further provides that the injured volunteer is entitled to the maximum weekly statutory wage for the year the injury was sustained. This is very important because it insures the injured volunteer will be protected in the event he or she loses time from their regular job due to an injury sustained while providing critical services for the communities they serve.
