Hager v. M&K Construction

In Hager v. M&K Construction, the New Jersey Supreme Court considered M&K Construction’s challenges with regard to a workers’ compensation court’s order that M&K reimburse Hager for the ongoing costs of the medical marijuana he was prescribed after sustaining a work-related injury while employed by M&K. The Court affirmed, holding that M&K did not fit within New Jersey’s Jake Honig Compassionate Use Medical Cannabis Act’s limited reimbursement exception. And Hager presented sufficient credible evidence to the compensation court to establish that the prescribed medical marijuana represented, as to him, reasonable and necessary treatment under the New Jersey Workers’ Compensation Act.
