Workers’ Comp in New Mexico

Workers’ Compensation (or Workers’ Comp) is an insurance program for people who get hurt at their jobs.  If you got hurt at work, instead of suing your boss or the company, you apply for insurance coverage through your company’s work comp plan.

Why do I Need a Lawyer for Workers’ Comp?

Workers’ Comp is supposed to be a trade-off.  You get wages and medical coverage for your injury without having to prove negligence by the company.  In return, you aren’t allowed to sue the company.  But it doesn’t always work out that way.

Workers’ Comp is still insurance.  Which means there are insurance companies behind it all.  Insurance companies make money when they take insurance payments.  They lose money when they pay out claims.  So like all insurance companies, Workers’ Comp insurance companies want to try to limit what they have to pay out.

The Workers’ Compensation Process can be long, difficult, and unfair. You need an attorney on your side.
