Our client from Windham, NH was employed by a Massachusetts firm in Tewksbury. He was injured in a collision caused by a negligent driver while using his car in New Hampshire for business. He received workers` compensation from Massachusetts which paid for his medical bills and wages while out of work. We also handled the claim against the other driver, who had limited coverage and a third claim against the client’s own insurance for underinsured coverage.
We handled the workers’ compensation case, the auto liability case and the underinsured auto case in such a way, consistent with the laws of Massachusetts and New Hampshire so there was no offset or deduction to the client from what was paid under workers compensation. It was important to be very familiar with the laws of both Massachusetts and New Hampshire in the areas of worker’s compensation, auto liability, and insurance coverage. Finbury & Sullivan, P.C. attorneys frequently handle cases involving the law of both states.
