Once an injured individual contacts our firm in Massachusetts, we will begin to investigate their claim. We will ensure every intricate detail is evaluated including witness statements, the work site, and medical treatment in order to build a strong case.

No matter how minor the injury may seem, compensation may be awarded. It’s essential to contact a Boston construction accident lawyer to receive legal advice on any compensation you may be entitled to.

  3. Ask for the contact information of anyone who witnessed the accident
  4. Take photos of the accident scene and any injuries
  5. Contact one of our attorneys to learn what legal options are available

Following the tips above can help injured individuals in the future if they decide to file a claim for the injuries they have suffered.

No, workers’ compensation is a no-fault system. This means that you can receive benefits regardless of who was at fault for your injury, as long as it occurred during the course of your employment. In very rare cases where an individual exhibited extreme irresponsibility, such as if they were intoxicated or violent towards other workers, benefits may not be available. 

 

If you are concerned about liability in your case, we are happy to explore the details of your case and lay out your options for recovery.

In Massachusetts, you have four years from the date of your injury to file a claim for workers’ comp benefits. Despite this, it’s important to report your injury to your employer as soon as possible to avoid any potential issues.

By delaying the reporting, you may be compromising your rights to benefits or other legal remedies that may be available. Though there is no set deadline for doing so, seeking medical attention immediately can help in documenting the injury and its severity, which can be critical to the success of your workers’ comp claim. Medical records serve as evidence of the nature and extent of your injuries and can be used to determine the level of compensation you may be entitled to receive.

Generally, no. Because workers’ comp is a no-fault system that provides benefits to employees without the need for litigation, those who receive benefits through this system are not typically eligible to file a lawsuit against their employer.

However, there may be exceptions in cases of gross negligence or intentional harm. These exceptions are rare, and it will take a strong legal defense to successfully prove such negligence or harm.

Yes, undocumented workers are still entitled to workers’ comp benefits in Massachusetts. The law does not discriminate based on immigration status, and all employees, regardless of their status, are covered.
