Committed To Securing Maximum Compensation For Injured Workers
If you’ve been injured at work, you may not be satisfied with the treatment you are receiving from the workers’ compensation doctor or the benefits you are receiving. You may know what rights you have to seek a second opinion; now is also the time to seek legal advice. Your job and your health may depend on you taking the right steps.
New Hampshire’s workers’ compensation and personal injury laws protect employees hurt on the job site. You may not be familiar with these laws and procedures.

Our attorneys have over one century of legal experience which we use to present a compelling case that gets results in a timely fashion. With our assistance, you can be certain that you will be well-prepared to present your side before compensation boards or administrators.

In certain situations, injured workers may be eligible to receive workers’ compensation benefits and damages from a personal injury lawsuit. Our lawyers regularly represent the victims of workplace accidents who are taking action against negligent third parties. You may be eligible to file a third-party liability claim if your injury was caused by an individual who does not work for your employer or a business that leases or creates machinery that you operate at work.
We help workers file third-party liability claims against individuals or businesses responsible for injuries that result from:
- Motor vehicle accidents
- Faulty or dangerous machinery
- Unsafe premises
When you consult with us, we will review the circumstances surrounding your accident. If we can establish that your work-related injuries were caused by a contractor, property owner, manufacturer or another third party, we will seek out compensation from all available sources.
