Injured on the Job? Protect Your Right to Benefits! Call (508) 966-7254.

Workers compensation is an essential form of insurance carried by most employers, and it is vital to providing the support, medical benefits, and financial assistance workers need when they suffer job-related injuries or illnesses. While workers comp benefits are available, the system and process of applying, appealing a denial or disputed decision, and securing the full amount of benefits to which you are entitled is notoriously difficult – especially for workers who attempt to navigate challenging procedural hurdles without a lawyer.

Injuries Covered by Workers Comp

Per workers compensation laws, employees are eligible to recover various benefits when their injuries or illnesses result from job-related duties. This can involve a single isolated accident, or injuries and diseases that develop over time.

For example, workers’ compensation benefits are often awarded for:

  • Injuries in workplace accidents, including falls, falling objects, and more
  • Injuries resulting from the use of company equipment or machinery
  • Illnesses and diseases caused by workplace conditions
  • Motor vehicle accidents and commercial vehicle accidents
  • Preexisting injuries made worse by workplace conditions
  • Repetitive stress injuries caused by work-related duties
  • Fatal workplace accidents

Because workers compensation is a no-fault insurance system, it does not matter who caused your accident or injuries. Even if you caused or contributed to them yourself, you still have the ability to seek benefits. However, there are a number of reporting and procedural requirements to meet, and your injury must be supported by documentation that shows it resulted from job-related duties, and that it is appropriately classified according to its severity and impact on your ability to work. These are crucial factors in determining the benefits you receive, such as partial or total disability benefits, which is why working with an attorney can help ensure you meet all requirements and file a complete and accurate claim – or accurately assess and appeal a denial or disputed decision.

Workplace Injuries & Negligence: Third Party Claims

Although injured workers don’t typically have the right to sue their employers for negligence, they may have the right to file negligence-related claims if their accidents and injuries were caused by a third party. By pursuing a lawsuit in civil court outside of the workers’ compensation system, workers can secure additional compensation for their economic and non-economic damages.

However, they must prove a third party’s fault and liability, which may take the form of:

  • Worksite accidents caused by negligent third party contractors
  • Motor vehicle accidents caused by negligent motorists
  • Unsafe or defective products, equipment, or machinery
  • Exposure to toxic and harmful substances

When evaluating cases from injured workers, we help them explore whether third party liability plays a role in their case, and assist them in navigating the appropriate pathways toward full and fair compensation.
