Quincy Workers Compensation Lawyer

Protecting Your Rights After a Work-Related Injury

Suffering an injury on the job can put a lot on the line, from your physical well-being to your financial stability. When work-related injuries or illnesses are severe enough to prevent you from working, it is your right to seek benefits – including medical benefits, wage replacement, vocational rehabilitation, and more – through your employer’s workers compensation insurance. However, the difficulties associated with meeting requirements, filing a complete and accurate claim, and securing benefits at a time when you are still recovering from an injury can put you at risk of denials, delays, or underpayment.

To ensure you take the right steps after a work injury or illness and put yourself in position to file a successful claim, you can rely of proven attorneys like those at Morgan & Murphy, LLP. Our legal team has focused exclusively on personal injury and workers compensation law for over 30 years, and has helped workers from all professions and walks of life navigate the workers comp process to secure needed benefits. We also assist injured workers who have been denied benefits, as well as those who wish to appeal determinations with which they disagree.

Workers Compensation & Your Right to Benefits

Nearly all employers are required to carry workers compensation insurance as a means to provide employees who suffer job-related injuries or illnesses with essential benefits that provide them with the assistance they need when they are unable to work. These benefits can be awarded for various injuries and illnesses, including:

  • Traumatic injuries suffered in workplace accidents
  • Back and neck injuries
  • Arm, hand and leg injuries
  • Amputations
  • Falls from roofs
  • Repetitive stress injuries
  • Occupational illnesses
  • Partial and total disabilities
  • Temporary and permanent disabilities
  • Fatal workplace accidents (survivor’s benefits)

In order to receive benefits, workers must report their injuries or illnesses to their employers within a specific amount of time. They must also meet various requirements, provide documentation and medical evidence, and complete claims subject to review. Ensuring claims are thorough and accurate is essential to swiftly and successfully securing benefits, but as statistics show, many workers who attempt to navigate the process alone make critical mistakes that compromise their ability to secure benefits.

Because workers compensation is subject to a complex system of laws, and because workers have the right to legal representation, enlisting the help of a proven lawyer is important when applying for benefits or appealing decisions and denials. Our attorneys understand that workers and their families depend on these benefits to make ends meet while they are out of work, and we apply decades of experience to helping them secure the full amount of benefits to which they are entitled as quickly as possible.

Negligence & Workplace Accidents: Third Party Liability

Workers compensation is a form of no-fault insurance, which not only means workers have a right to benefits regardless of who caused their injuries, but also that employers can’t generally be sued for negligence. However, there are some cases where the negligence of a third party leads to preventable accidents and injuries, including cases involving:

  • Auto accidents / commercial vehicle accidents
  • Negligence contractors
  • Negligent property owners
  • Manufacturers of defective or unsafe products
  • Toxic exposure

In situations such as these, injured workers may have the right to seek compensation outside of workers comp. This allows a worker to recover the full scope of their economic and non-economic damages, though it also requires them to prove negligence, fault, and liability. As both personal injury and workers compensation lawyers, we can help you determine whether you may have a viable third party claim, and take the steps to recover compensation in the most appropriate manner possible.
