What's going on at the New Mexico Workers' Compensation Administration because of COVID-19

Posted by Robert Scott | Apr 21, 2020 | 0 Comments

It is my understanding that the New Mexico Workers' Compensation Administration is operating on a very limited basis and that much of its staff is working from home. This is to comply with the social distancing requirements from the Governor and the New Mexico Supreme Court. This link has up to date information about COVID-19 and the Administration.

The Administration's limited operations, however, does not relieve you of the requirements associated with your case. If you have an existing case at the Workers' Compensation Administration it is critical that you continue to monitor the case and do what is necessary to move it forward, including meeting all deadlines.

If you have a new injury and need to file a case at the Administration you can still do that and should do it as soon as possible. There's usually no reason to wait to file a workers' compensation claim, especially if there is a dispute about money and/or medical benefits.

If you have any questions about your workers' compensation case, please call me at 505 292-8836 or email me at [email protected].
