A New Bedford, MA man obtained a $150,000 settlement from the New Hampshire Insurance. He injured his back while lifting heavy objects at work. d’Oliveira & Associates maintained joint responsibility with another Massachusetts workers compensation attorney, who settled the case with the insurance company.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira said, “This workers compensation attorney, that we referred this case to, obtained a good settlement for the client. We see so many people injuring their backs from lifting things at work. I wish more employers properly educated their employees on proper lifting techniques as many of these injuries could be prevented.”
Even if the employer was not at fault, workers’ compensation is an employee insurance program that provides benefits to an employee who is injured while on the job. Your employer’s insurance company will compensate you for your lost wages, medical bills, and in some cases, provide a lump sum settlement. Furthermore, you may also be eligible to receive other benefits, including money for permanent scarring and job retraining.
If you or a loved one were recently injured while on the job, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical expenses and lost earnings, among other losses. You should contact a knowledgeable Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Lawyer to discuss all of your options and to get you the best possible compensation for your injuries.
