Workers' compensation: focus on healing; let us do the work

By their nature, worker compensation cases occur at the most venerable time in a Massachusetts resident's life. Being unable to work often times means no income, forcing a person to rely on their savings. Having a worker compensation claim disputed can force an injured worker to exist in a sort of limbo, where they can longer work and are not able to get assistance from the programs created to help people in their situation.

In Massachusetts, there are anywhere between 50,000 to 60,000 worker compensation claims filed each year. Of these claims 10,000 to 11,000 are disputed. According to the Department of Industrial Accidents half of the disputed cases are resolved within three to four weeks, while a fourth of the cases take six to nine months to resolve.

In the United States' paycheck to paycheck environment, six to nine months can be a virtual death sentence for some. The lack of income and the never ending stream of bills can cause some to lose everything they worked years to build.

Our firm has years of experience dealing with the complexities of Massachusetts workers' compensation framework. We will not only pursue the workers compensation claim, but will also examine your case to determine if a lawsuit against a third party is reasonable. Because sometimes a negligent part or product is to blame for the workplace injury making possible the recovery of additional compensation.

Insurance companies have teams of lawyers working for them, all with the aim of minimizing the company's exposure to payouts. They do not fight their battles alone and neither should you.
