Working conditions and personal safety

Many residents of New Mexico are familiar with the phrase "personal injury," but few are aware of the complexities that can surround such incidents. An injury on the job may not seem likely until it has happened in the blink of an eye. While most New Mexico employers are required by law to provide workers' compensation insurance coverage to employees, the details of these regulations can quickly overwhelm those who are already struggling after an accident. 

Your rights after a work-related accident

Even though there are some lines of work and jobs that are inherently more dangerous than others, it is important that you remember that you can be injured on the job regardless of where you work and what job you perform. Many New Mexico residents experience work-related accidents or even develop illnesses due to a situation or environment at work across a spectrum of industries. Knowing what to expect if this happens is important.

What To Do if your Workers' Compensation Benefits are Denied

You have worked at your job for years- given it your blood, sweat and tears. Until one day, while doing the thing you love, you are injured. Now, the job that you have loved and sacrificed for, you can no longer do. And it is breaking your heart, each day you have to sit on the sidelines. You can also no longer provide for your family.

Workplace injuries and the most dangerous jobs

For most New Mexico employees, the end of a work day signals the time for much-needed personal care, errands and leisure. Not all workers, however, get to enjoy the satisfaction of this freedom, instead grappling with the many steps of a workplace injury. No matter what type of accident is at hand, a large majority of employers must follow state laws surrounding worker benefits and compensation. However, do the industries themselves open the door for safety hazards?
