In Massachusetts, the law requires all employers to provide employees with workers’ compensation coverage. Workers’ compensation is an insurance program that provides benefits to employees to cover certain types of losses that result from an injury in the workplace. Although required by law, 50% of the times employees who file a workers’ compensation claim are faced with denials by their employer. This is when getting a lawyer involved becomes especially important.
What Is Workers’ Compensation?
Workers’ compensation is the benefit system that helps you when you are injured while at work. This is commonly referred to as “in the scope of employment,” and the benefits may consist of lost wages, medical expenses, job training, and other losses. These types of claims require an injured party to adequately document the accident and submit a report containing the details of the accident to an employer in a timely manner.
Often times a car accident claim may be connected to a workers’ compensation claim, so it is important to be informed about this possibility for your case. Our experienced MA workers’ compensation lawyers are happy to assist you with your case and provide you with the legal knowledge that you need to ensure that you receive a favorable settlement to cover all losses.
