Understanding Workers’ Compensation
Almost every employer in Massachusetts is required to carry workers’ compensation insurance. The only exception applies to domestic employees, who must work at least 16 hours to be covered. Workers’ compensation is a no-fault system, which means that no matter what caused your accident, you are eligible for benefits so long as the incident occurred during the normal course of your work duties. Benefits can apply whether you were hurt while traveling for work, were diagnosed with carpal tunnel from typing due to your job, or even slipped in the bathroom.
The problem is that many workers’ compensation claims are denied the first time they’re filed. Your employer may challenge your claim or the insurance company may look for any reason to escape liability for your accident. Filing for workers’ comp and handling the insurance company alone can seem impossible, especially when you’re dealing with a serious injury or medical condition.
For these reasons, it’s important to have a Springfield workers’ comp lawyer who understands the laws surrounding workers’ comp and can help guide you through the process of filing a claim or appealing a denied claim.
