Majority of injured workers are entitled to obtain workers’ compensation benefits after a work accident has occurred to cover the medical treatments they might need as well as provide a portion of their current salary or hourly pay for the time they are unable to work. How can you obtain these benefits? Below we explain the process you must go through.
 

How can I receive workers’ compensation benefits if I work in New Mexico?

 
Before you can receive benefits from your employer for your recent work accident, you do need to notify them within 15 days from when the accident occurred. You then need to complete the Notice of Accident form or notify your employer in writing of the incident and your subsequent injuries. If you would like to download the Notice of Accident form now, you can do so by clicking here. Most employers should have this form available at your place of employment, however, it may be more convenient to print it out yourself.
If you are having an issue with getting your Notice of Accident form filed or signed by your employer, don’t hesitate to contact us here at USAttorneys.com. Our skilled Santa Fe, NM accident lawyers can guide you in the right direction in terms of how to handle the matter.
Once you fill out the form and your employer signs it, they are acknowledging that they have been notified of your recent accident. Be sure you keep a copy for your own records as well. Once your employer has been informed, they should follow the process that is necessary for their insurer to begin providing you with the benefits you need. This may take some time as the insurance company is going to want to be sure your accident wasn’t a result of your own negligence or that you weren’t engaging in anything illegal that led up to the accident occurring.
After the insurer makes the decision as to whether you are entitled to benefits or not, you should then proceed to seek medical attention from an approved health care provider. Choosing an approved health care provider is something you and the insurance company should discuss as you may be required to seek treatment from a certain health care professional. While you may be able to receive care from a doctor of your choice, it is best to find out first before scheduling your visits.
 
Another thing you are required to do in order for your workers’ comp benefits to be paid outis keepingp your scheduled appointments. If the insurer feels as though you don’t need the care, they may request that the doctor discharge you and attempt to have you go back to work.
