Worksite Injuries in New Hampshire

By Mulvey, Cornell & Mulvey  Oct. 27, 2010 9:45a

Injuries in the workplace are not uncommon in any state including New Hampshire. The construction industry happens to be one of the more hazardous industries as it poses more dangers than many other professions. Having to deal with hazards like being exposed to chemicals, electrical wires, deep trenches, high-rise scaffolds, heavy machinery and numerous other dangers offers more opportunity for injuries to occur.

Employers in any industry have a responsibility to their workers to follow safety regulations and ensure the environment is safe. This is one reason for OSHA regulations and the importance of them being followed. When management does not place enough importance on safety in a work environment, accidents happen and people get injured or lose their lives. Tragedy sets in for not only the one injured, but for the family as well.

If You Have Been Injured

When someone gets injured, their attention is riveted to handling any injuries or medical conditions as a result of the accident. Medical expenses can become quite costly for worksite injuries and the injured person may not be able to work for awhile during the recovery process. Workmen's compensation can help with expenses but may not be enough. There may be a third party who was a contributing factor to the accident in which case an additional claim may be filed for compensation.
