Camden Workers Compensation Court

The city of Camden played a key role in the construction of maritime shipping during World War II. A key South Jersey port on the Delaware River, Camden’s location is opposite to Philadelphia.
Before WWII, the city was home to one of the most famous poets of the English language- Walt Whitman. He lived in Camden, New Jersey, for the latter part of his life. His house is still standing today at 330 Martin Luther King Blvd. (also known as Mickle Blvd) in downtown Camden. The house is across from the county courthouse and jail and down the street from the South Jersey Workers Compensation court.
Whitman purchased the house in 1884 after having visited the city earlier. He resided there until his death in 1892 of pleurisy at the age of 72. One of the bridges connecting South Jersey to Philadelphia across the Delaware River is the Walt Whitman Bridge.
Whitman was a staunch advocate of the working class. This class worked then with no expectation of receiving a workers compensation benefit in the event of a work accident. In fact, New Jersey was one of 12 states that enacted the first workman comp laws in the country but not until 1911. Whitman advocated social, economic, and political egalitarianism. At the time, this did not reflect the reality of the Industrial Revolution in America or England. For Whitman, the true American spirit resides in the working masses and not the quasi-aristocratic business owners of the day. That American spirit remains in South Jersey today. American democracy and the potential of the nation took center stage in Whitman’s poetry. As such, the individual worker represented the best hope for society.
Camden City in South Jersey has been plagued over the past few decades with high poverty and high crime rates. The situation is changing, though, with large corporations relocating to the city, such as Campbell’s Soup and American Water Works. As a whole, South Jersey has a diverse industry base, as reflected in the diagram below.
