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.
You can find more detailed information about workers' compensation benefits and third party claims as they relate to plant and industrial explosions on this blog.
