Q: I drive as a full time job. I was involved in a significant accident today. I need to know my rights.
I rear ended someone and totalled both the vehicle I was driving and the vehicle I hit. My boss brought me to the hospital and wanted to run it through my insurance, however when I explained what happened the nurse did it through workers comp. I got the impression that my boss didn't like this. I'm worried about losing my job and or my license. I was supposed to have taken a physical and drug test before being hired and never did. I need to know what I should do. My boss also took the original copy of my hospital release forms and forced me to take a photo copy. I never signed the original copy.
A: Speak with a member of the NH Assn for Justice who handles comp claims--they give free consults. Generally, you can be terminated for any reason--reasons go to whether you can collect unemployment. You want to avoid giving statements until you have spoken with the attorney.
