New Hampshire Workers’ Compensation laws provide certain benefits for workers who are injured while working for their employers. Workplace injuries may occur suddenly and unexpectedly, or they may be the result of long-term repetitive motion or other chronic workplace safety problems. When a family member sustains an injury at work, the consequences for the entire family can be frightening. It is important that injured workers become fully informed of all of their rights under New Hampshire workers’ compensation laws, in order to receive the full benefit of the many different aspects of these laws.
Insurance Companies Aren’t Looking After Your Best Interests
Injured workers are often under the mistaken impression that an attorney isn’t necessary for a workers’ compensation case, simply because the employer and the workers’ compensation insurance company may sometimes accept the claim and begin paying benefits. However, even if insurance companies offer payment of medical bills and weekly temporary total disability benefits, workers are often entitled to more than these companies lead them to believe.
The insurance companies often try to pacify injured workers and make them believe that they are there to help. In reality, it is the insurance adjuster’s job to save the insurance company as much money as possible, which means paying injured workers as little as possible.
The 2 Simple Reasons Why You Need a Workers’ Compensation Attorney
- The insurance adjuster’s job is to save the insurance company as much money as possible.
- Adjusters accomplish this by paying injured workers as little money as possible.
Attorney Gary Casinghino can assist you in obtaining the maximum benefits available through the complicated workers’ compensation system.
The weekly temporary total disability benefit is also often calculated incorrectly by the workers’ compensation insurance carrier, without the injured worker or the New Hampshire Labor Department being aware of the miscalculation. There are many workers’ compensation benefits, including vocational rehabilitation and permanent partial impairment awards, which an injured worker may not fully learn of from the insurance company. It is important for injured workers to obtain the advice of a knowledgeable, experienced attorney who can maximize the benefits available to the worker through the complicated workers’ compensation system.
