Many incidents of nursing home abuse go unreported


Worcester families who decide that they must place a loved one in a nursing home so the person can receive proper care will expect that there be a certain standard applied. Unfortunately, it is disturbingly common for there to be allegations of nursing home abuse or negligence against nursing home staff. These acts can range from theft to intimidation to physical, emotional and sexual abuse and more. Those who have a loved one who has been mistreated or abused have the right to seek compensation in a personal injury case.

Car accident with pedestrian sends man, 28, to hospital


If there is a car collision in Worcester or anywhere else in Massachusetts, there can be serious injuries, long-term damage, significant medical expenses and worse. When these accidents involve a vehicle and a pedestrian, the danger of the person who was hit being injured badly or even killed are much higher than they are if the accident is between vehicles. After a pedestrian-car accident, the injured person should know that a full accident investigation must be conducted and that it is possible to receive compensation through a legal filing to cover all that was lost.

What medical benefits do I get under workers' compensation?


One of the biggest questions that an injured Massachusetts worker will have is how the medical expenses will be covered through workers' compensation. There are certain rules for who qualifies and how the medical costs will be paid. Understanding these factors is important when a person is injured on the job or has a condition or illness related to the work that they do and needs medical care as a result.

What if there is a dispute in my workers' compensation claim?


When a Massachusetts worker is injured on the job or suffers a condition or illness due to the work they do, they might believe they are entitled to workers' compensation benefits. Sometimes, however, there are issues surrounding workers' compensation claims that cause problems for the person to get the benefits. There are four steps in settling a workers' compensation dispute. They are: conciliation, conference, hearing, and reviewing board. The Department of Industrial Accidents (DIA) helps to settle these disputes.
