Injuries that occur at work or in a work-related capacity can be compensated for under workers' compensation. Workers' compensation is a remedy provided by Massachusetts statute for injured workers on a no-fault basis. This means regardless of who was "at fault," a worker is compensated for his or her injuries, including medical bills and lost wages. However, the trade-off is that in most cases the injured worker cannot sue the employer for injuries. Essentially, this means compensation is capped, with the limited exception of third-party liability claims.
In order to secure the full and fair compensation you need for your work-related injuries, you need a skilled Boston workers' compensation attorney who can represent your best interests. Insurance companies can deny a worker the right to full benefits. You need an attorney on your side to make sure you receive compensation.
