Workers’ Compensation: Understanding Your Rights And Responsibilities
When you’ve been injured on the job, you likely have countless questions. How can you get the medical help you need? Who will pay for treatment? How can you continue to make ends meet while you’re unable to work?
For most injured workers, the answers lie in New Hampshire’s workers’ compensation system. Workers’ comp is a safety net for employees who sustain job-related injuries and illnesses. Through a successful claim, you may be entitled to several types of benefits, including medical coverage, lost wages and job security.
To take full advantage of these benefits, you must follow the right legal steps and present a strong claim. It’s critical to understand your rights and responsibilities with regard to workers’ compensation. Even if your claim has been denied, you may still have options for getting benefits. You might also have separate personal injury claims against third parties if negligence contributed to your injuries. The right lawyer can help you assess your options.
