Workers Compentsation

We Don’t Get Paid Unless You Win

Workers’ compensation is a system of insurance mandated by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to provide benefits to employee’s who are injured in the course of their employment. The law requires all employers to provide workers’ compensation insurance coverage which include payment of the injured workers medical bills, payment of weekly disability benefits in an amount up to two thirds of the injured employees average weekly wage and possible vocational retraining regardless of who is at fault. The vast majority of workers compensation claims will end up getting resolved by way of a lump sum settlement with the insurer paying the injured worker a lump sum of money to buy out the injured workers claim to any future weekly disability benefits. Injured workers may also have additional claims for compensation if the injury suffered was caused by the negligent act or acts of some one other than the employer or a co-employee.

Qualifying for Workers’ Compensation

In order to be eligible for workers’ compensation, a worker must prove that injuries sustained occurred while the individual was on the job, and that the injuries resulted from performing within the normal course of his or her employment.

Workers’ compensation is not necessarily limited only to on the job accidents. Sometimes cases in which a worker developed illness or injury from long term exposure to a daily work environment have qualified for workers’ compensation payments.
