Manchester NH Workers’ Compensation Lawyers

Navigating the world of workers’ compensation when you have been injured at work can be a minefield, full of traps for those unfamiliar with the various rules and regulations. Most people enter the system just once or a couple of times and are at a huge disadvantage trying to protect their rights and benefits without the assistance of experienced counsel. They likely do not know that there is a time limit to report a work injury to the employer, that the employer has a time limit to then report to their insurance company and to the state Department of Labor, that there is a time limit for actually making a claim (aside from simply reporting what happened), that the insurance company has the right to deny all or any part of a claim, that there are regulations governing how documents may be submitted to the Labor Department, that the insurance company can send the injured worker to be examined by a doctor of their own choosing, and that there is a time limitation for requesting a hearing after one receives a written denial. When up against the insurance company an injured worker needs the steady hand of an attorney who has represented others in this process. At BK&W we can offer those services. If you’ve been injured at work, and are unsure of your rights, call us for an appointment today.
