Albuquerque Workers Compensation Attorney Gerald Hanrahan is ready to represent you against the trained professional adjusters and attorney’s hired by your employer’s insurance company.
If you are injured on the job, you are entitled to benefits as set forth by the New Mexico Worker’s Compensation Act. Generally, those benefits include wage replacement during the period of your medical recovery, payment of medical bills from “authorized” healthcare providers, and preferential treatment in re-hire.
While some work injuries heal quickly with little medical expense or lost time from work, others can be worse. In serious work injury claims, there are both short term and long term concerns. In the short term, you should be sure that you are receiving the correct financial benefits, and that your medical care is continuing appropriately and uninterrupted. Long term, you should be sure that you continue your entitlement to “reasonable and necessary” medical care and that your long term financial benefits are paid correctly.
