Perhaps you’ve heard the term “workers’ compensation” before, but now that you’ve been injured in a workplace accident, you’re wondering if this term applies to you? If you were hurt or injured, or someone you love was injured or killed in a workplace accident in New Hampshire, you may actually be entitled to benefits that could help you pay your medical bills or other related expenses.
Though workers’ compensation was created so injured workers could access the benefits they need in order to make up for lost wages and to pay medical bills, the system has been poorly set up, and as a result it is not always easy to get benefits. The law requires employers meet specific insurance standards when it comes to workers’ compensation, but many employers and the insurance companies will do everything in their power to deny you benefits or minimize the money they are willing to give you.
