New Mexico Workers Compensation Laws

As per New Mexico workers compensation laws, employers must pay the compensation benefits to the employee suffering from occupational injuries and illnesses in several installments. The first installment must be paid within 14 days from the date of accident during which the injured worker misses at least 7 days of work. These seven days of wage loss do not necessarily have to be in a consecutive order. The remaining payments can be made in at least two installments per month, where the amount of money in each installment must be nearly (if not exactly) equal.
