A North Dartmouth, MA man received a $225,000 Lump Sum settlement from Arch Insurance after filing a workers’ compensation claim. During the course of his employment, he slipped and fell. He injured his shoulder and knee and required extensive medical treatment. After workers’ compensation started giving him a hard time regarding his benefits, he called our office for legal assistance. In the end, d’Oliveira & Associates remained jointly responsible with a Massachusetts workers’ compensation lawyer, who negotiated this Lump Sum settlement with the insurance company.
Without legal representation, the insurance company that pays your workers’ compensation benefits may, over time, make things difficult. Much like with this client, they may question if you need certain procedures done. Even if your personal doctor says you need a certain procedure or treatment, the insurance company’s doctors may say something completely different. Additionally, the insurance company could start to reduce or completely remove your benefits altogether, even when you still need them. Before things get out of hand, you should contact a lawyer to ensure your benefits are protected to the fullest extent.
