Workers Compensation Lawyers in Manchester NH
Employers in New Hampshire are required to carry Workers’ Compensation insurance to cover all employees. Individuals who have been injured on the job may be entitled to benefits from the Workers’ Compensation. While you may not want to think of a time when you can’t go to work because of an injury, it does happen. There are times when even the most careful individual can become injured on the job.
Injured at Work?
When you suffer an injury or illness due to your work it is vital that you file for Workers’ Compensation benefits right away. There is a timeline for filing for this compensation that starts to run from the time you first seek medical treatment. According the RSA 281-A: 19, an employee must notify the employer of the injury or illness within 2 years of medical treatment or diagnosis. If the injury or illness is something that only becomes evident over time the employee has to let the employer know the approximate date that they first contracted the illness or suffered the injury as near as they can provide. The employee then has only 3 years from the time of treatment or discovery of illness or injury to file a claim for benefits according to RSA 281-A:21-a.
