What to do When Injured on the Job
Have you sustained an on the job injury? If so, you may have more options than you know. The best way to find the most effective way to get the full compensation you are due is by calling (603) 556-4148 and scheduling a free consultation with one of our New Hampshire workers’ compensation attorneys.
Workers’ compensation is a no-fault insurance program that helps injured workers get back on their feet. Because it is no-fault, compensation is limited to actual expense such as medical costs, wage reimbursement, and some travel expenses. This is often a good option for people who are injured in accidents for which no liable party is identifiable.
Personal injury lawsuits can be filed for some on the job injuries. With this type of action, a liable party must be identified, allowing additional compensation – such as lifestyle changes and pain and suffering – to be taken into account. Not all workplace injuries are eligible for this type of action, though it may be best in cases where they are.
