Workers’ Compensation Benefits

Most employers in the state of Massachusetts are required by law to carry workers’ compensation insurance. This insurance is designed as a social safety net that helps workers and their families following accidents, injuries, and / or illnesses they suffer during the course of performing work-related duties. By filing a workers’ comp claim, workers can recover benefits for medical treatment and wage supplementation. Those benefits can vary depending on the type of injury and disability workers suffer, as well as its impact on their ability to work.

For example, you may be entitled to:

  • Temporary total disability benefits
  • Partial disability benefits
  • Permanent and total disability benefits
  • Survivor’s benefits for fatal workplace accidents

Because these benefits are so crucial to helping victims and their families make ends meet while they recover and receive the treatment they need, our legal team prioritizes timely action and step-by-step guidance through the workers’ compensation process. Often, injured workers who go without a lawyer can make mistakes that jeopardize their claims. Whether you wish to avoid these mistakes with the help of an attorney, or need to enlist the assistance of a lawyer to appeal a claim that has already been denied, Morgan & Murphy, LLP is here to help.

Third Party Work Injury Claims

One of the most defining aspects of the workers’ compensation system is that it is a form of no-fault insurance. This means workers who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses are entitled to benefits regardless of who is at fault. However, in some cases, injured workers may have the right to seek compensation outside of the workers’ comp system, which can provide additional compensation for pain and suffering and other damages, if their accidents and injuries were caused by the negligence of a third party.

Third party negligence claims arising from work injuries are personal injury cases handled in civil court, and they may be an option in your case if a party other than your employer was negligent in causing your accident or injury.

Examples include:

  • A negligent contractor working at your worksite or with your company
  • A negligent motorist, not employed by your company, who caused your accident while you were on the job
  • A product manufacturer that made an unsafe or defective product, tool, or piece of equipment that caused your injuries on the job

As part of our commitment to helping victims secure the maximum compensation possible, we can help you determine whether third party liability played a role in your workplace accident, and help you pursue compensation from that negligent party.
