Workers’ Compensation Attorney in Brockton

Skilled & Compassionate Legal Representation: (508) 966-7254

When you are injured at work, you may be entitled to benefits through workers’ compensation. Companies are responsible for ensuring the safety of their workers, and if you are injured at work or while driving for work, you could be compensated for your injury and for any lost wages while you recover. However, obtaining your benefits can sometimes be more difficult than it may seem.

Going through a workers’ compensation case can be complicated and dealing with your employer’s insurance company could take ages. The insurance companies aren’t looking out for your best interest, but our workers’ compensation lawyers are. We understand the difficult spot you’re in, and we know how hard it can be to deal with insurance claims and problems with delayed or underpaid workers’ comp benefits. We have worked with more than 10,000 injured individuals over the years and we know precisely what to do for your situation, no matter how complex or problematic.

How To Handle a Workers’ Compensation Case

If you were injured while at work, the first thing you should do is seek medical attention. Many workers attempt to continue working, thinking the injury isn’t too bad or that they could be penalized for leaving early. However, if you were injured on the job, your first priority should be your health. If your boss or supervisor tries to prevent you from seeking medical help, they could face serious repercussions.

After you’ve been injured, inform your boss or supervisor of the injury and how it occurred. Be as detailed as possible, telling them about the time of the injury, where it occurred, and how. If there were any witnesses, make sure you write down their names and contact information. While at the doctor’s office, make sure you tell your healthcare provider exactly how the injury occurred. Since your injury could be a workers’ comp case, the doctor’s testimony could be key, so they need to take in every detail of your wound.

Different Types of Workers’ Comp Benefits

Depending on the nature of your accident and the extent of your injuries, you may be entitled to different types of benefits. Some workers might be granted temporary total disability benefits, which pays out 60% of a worker’s total wage, tax-free. These benefits may last a maximum of 3 years.

Workers who are still able to work, but only on light duty where their injury will not be inflamed, can receive partial disability benefits. With partial benefits, the wages earned while performing the light duty work will be subtracted from your previous average, and you will receive 60% of the difference. Partial disability can last for up to 5 years.

Some workers might even be eligible for permanent disability benefits, which only occurs when the worker is unable to work and is permanently and totally disabled. These payments could last the individual’s lifetime and should cover any annual cost of living adjustments.
