What Are Injured Workers' Rights?
Under New Hampshire
workers' compensation law, injured workers' may be eligible to recover benefits and compensation
through various options. These may include:
- Weekly Disability Benefits
- Permanent Impairment Award
- Vocational Assistance
- Medical Expenses
It is important to remember that when an injured worker elects to receive
workers' compensation benefits on a no-fault basis, they relinquish
their right to sue an employee or co-employee for negligence. In cases
in which explosions or workplace accidents were caused by the negligence
of an employer or co-employee – especially those involving safety
violations – injured workers may pursue compensation by filing a
civil lawsuit against any part that have caused or contributed to their
injuries. These civil claims – known as third party claims –
require victims to show that the at-fault party was negligent.
