Workers' Compensation

Protecting the rights of workers through Workers' Compensation

Workers can be injured in accidents related to their job or suffer from an illness, disease or condition caused by the workplace environment or the job. The State of New Hampshire recognizes the rights of injured or ill workers by requiring every employer in the state to obtain workers' compensation insurance or to be approved as a self-insurer.

If you are injured at work or suffer from an occupational disease or a condition caused by repetitive work you can receive the following benefits if appropriate for you:

  • Life long medical, hospital, and remedial care;
  • Temporary or total disability compensation while out of work;
  • Alternative work opportunities;
  • Reinstatement to work;
  • Vocational rehabilitation;
  • Permanent impairment award;
  • Lump sum settlement.

Attorney Seaton has helped many people achieve the compensation they deserve when they were injured at work. His cases have included construction site accidents and other job related injuries, including those who suffered long term wear and tear on joints, legs, arms, and knees and due to years of strain and had to have a hip, knee or shoulder replaced. He has successfully achieved results in many carpal tunnel syndrome cases and other conditions caused by repetitive work conditions.

Although you can be injured at any job, some occupations are more dangerous than others. Nurses, nursing aides and LNA’s, health care workers, orderlies and attendants missed the most days from work due to an on the job injury according to a 2006 Department of Labor report. Construction workers, movers and truck drivers came in second with more than 40,000 “at work” injuries reported.
