A Woonsocket, RI man recently obtained a $125,000 workers’ compensation lumpsum settlement from Charter Oak Fire Insurance Company. As a result of the repetitive and prolonged use of his hands at work, he developed carpal tunnel syndrome in both wrists, requiring surgery. d’Oliveira & Associates remained jointly responsible with another Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation attorney, who was able to secure a lump sum settlement for the client from the insurance company.
Attorney Paul d’Oliveira said, “I think the client got a very good settlement of his case as it is very difficult to get an insurance company to put this much money on this type of injury.”
Workers’ Compensation is an insurance program which provides benefits to an employee who is injured on the job. The compensation is available whether or not the employer was at fault. Your employer’s insurance company will typically compensate you for about 2/3 of your lost earnings, medical costs, and in cases of serious injury, provide you with a lump sum settlement. Additionally, you may be eligible to receive other benefits, including money for permanent scarring and job retraining.
