Workers’ Compensation: Your Rights to Benefits

Workers’ compensation is a form of insurance carried by nearly all employers in the state of Massachusetts. As no-fault insurance, it is designed to provide benefits injured workers need after suffering job-related injuries or illnesses – regardless of who is at fault for those injuries. These benefits cover both medical treatment and wages based on the classification of a worker’s disability, as well as other special circumstances.

For example, you may be entitled to benefits for:

  • Temporary total disability
  • Partial disability
  • Permanent and total disability
  • Surviving spouses (fatal accidents or illnesses)
  • Vocational rehabilitation
  • Permanent loss of function
  • Scarring and disfigurement
  • Lump sum benefits

Because workplace injuries can create substantial strains for victims and their families, securing benefits is critical to helping them navigate their lives as they recover. Unfortunately, the workers’ compensation process can be complex and highly technical, which causes many workers to make mistakes that can compromise their ability to recover the benefits they need. As such, working with a lawyer immediately following a work-related injury or illness can ensure you take the right steps and seek the right types of benefits when submitting your workers’ comp claim. If you have already been denied, or your benefits have been delayed, legal representation is critical to helping you explore your options, correct any mistakes, and pursue the most positive outcome possible.

Third Party Liability & Personal Injury Claims

As a form of no-fault insurance, workers’ compensation requires employees to waive their right to sue an employer for negligence. However, there may be cases where their work-related injuries were caused by the negligence of someone other than their employer. In these situations, injured workers may have the right to pursue a personal injury claim outside of the workers’ compensation system against that third party, and recover the full scope of their damages.

Determining whether or not you have a claim for third party liability is a matter that varies from case to case. However, these cases generally arise when injuries are caused by contractors with whom employees work with or share a jobsite, car accidents involving motorists and companies other than an employer, negligent property owners, and manufacturers of defective products. Our legal team can help you better understand whether third party negligence played a role in your case, and assist you in taking the appropriate response.
