Workers' compensation was created to provide you, a worker, with protection against the financial implications of injuries at work. Your employer has the responsibility to buy this insurance, so if you are injured, you should have access to it and be able to claim for it whenever you're hurt.
You need to know that if you're hurt, you deserve that compensation. You shouldn't be at risk for losing your job or facing criticism due to the need to file a claim. If you have faced any kind of retaliation due to filing a claim, that's against the law in New Hampshire and the rest of the United States.
In most cases, you won't be able to sue your employer for injuries because you're already receiving workers' compensation. If the injury was caused by a defective product or if you were injured due to a subcontractor, you may be able to sue a third party for additional compensation. Working out this claim along with workers' compensation can be tricky, which is why legal help is advisable.
As a worker, your rights need to be protected and are protected by law. Workers' compensation was designed to help those who get hurt on the job by providing them with medical care and the money they need to recover. In some cases, getting workers' compensation may be difficult, even though the system is fairly straightforward. If you've been hurt at work and haven't been able to get compensation despite your injuries, please take a moment to review our workers' compensation webpage. There are many options you can look into when it comes to the legal challenge ahead of you.
