SUPERIOR COURT OF NEW JERSEY APPELLATE DIVISION DOCKET NO. A-4251-17T3 LILIA ORELLANA, Petitioner-Respondent, v. CHABAD LUBAVITCH JEWISH CENTER OF MONROE, Respondent-Appellant. _____________________________ Argued September 10, 2019 – Decided October 9, 2019 Before Judges Yannotti and Firko. On appeal from the New Jersey Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Division of Workers' Compensation, Claim Petition No. 2017-030632. David Hoffman argued the cause for appellant (Wysoker Glassner Weingartner Gonzalez & Lockspeiser, PA, attorneys; David Hoffman, on the briefs). Robert Blair White, III argued the cause for respondent (Garces Grabler & LeBrocq, PC, attorneys; Robert Blair White, III, on the brief). PER CURIAM Respondent Chabad Lubavitch Jewish Center of Monroe (Center) appeals from orders entered on March 26, April 16, and May 7, 2018 by the Division of Workers' Compensation.

Unable to stand, Orellana was transported by ambulance, ordered by the Zaklikovsky's daughter, to an emergency room for treatment. Orellana sustained a meniscal tear to her left knee, as well as lumbar and cervical herniations. She testified that the emergency room personnel would not treat her injuries because they were work- related and her employer "had to be notified." The Center did not maintain workers' compensation insurance at the time of petitioner's accident. Thereafter, Orellana amended her petition to assert claims against the Zaklikovskys as the Center's owners and principal operators.
