Ask for a free consultation about your workers' comp claim.
Our law firm has been serving clients on the New Hampshire Seacoast since 1920. We know how the system works. In addition to handling your workers' compensation claim, our personal injury lawyers can help you with a third-party liability claim. If you are unable to work, we can also help you pursue a Social Security disability claim.
Workers' compensation is for your protection. If you are injured at work, workers' comp is there to pay a percentage of your weekly income and to pay your medical bills. If you have been denied coverage or if your company's insurance carrier denies your claim, contact a lawyer who has a thorough knowledge of the system and your rights.
Do not be afraid to file a claim. Sometimes workers are concerned about losing their jobs if they file workers' compensation claims. If an employer retaliates for filing a claim, our employment law attorneys can explain your legal options.
Third-party liability could add to your benefits. You cannot sue your employer for most jobsite injuries, but if a defective product or the actions of a subcontractor caused your injuries, or if you were injured during a motor vehicle accident while working, you may be able to file a third-party claim in court. Our attorneys have the experience and knowledge to coordinate and maximize the benefits you are entitled to.
Construction accidents are especially dangerous. In constructions accidents, there are often opportunities to make a claim in addition to workers' compensation. Tell your lawyer about everything that contributed to your injuries - poor maintenance of the construction site, failure to warn about a danger, failure to have appropriate machinery guards, defective machinery, defective scaffolding, or debris on the worksite. If your injuries are serious, you need to explore every source of compensation that may be available to you.
If you have been injured at work, contact us about your workers' comp claim and a possible third-party liability claim. The consultation is free, and there is no charge unless we obtain compensation for you. Our lawyers represent clients in New Hampshire and Maine.
