Massachusetts Workers’ Compensation Law
Massachusetts recognizes the need for a financial safety net for injured workers. Workers’ compensation laws work to fill that need. In Massachusetts, you can file a workers’ compensation claim to claim funds for:
- Medical bills from your accident
- Lost wages from missed work
- Rehabilitation costs
- Other costs directly related to your injury
The amount of money that you can claim depends on the extent of your injury. The state of Massachusetts has three different recognized levels of injury in workers’ compensation cases:
- For total and permanent incapacitation, a worker can receive two-thirds of their average wage.
- If the worker is completely incapacitated but only temporarily, they can receive 60 percent of their average wage for up to three years.
- For partial and temporary incapacitation, a worker can receive 60 percent of the difference in their wages before and after the injury occurred.
If you have any questions about your specific situation, talk to an attorney that specializes in workers’ compensation claims.
Workers’ Compensation: Why You May Need the Help of Construction Accident Lawyers
While you don’t necessarily need an attorney to file your workers’ compensation lawyers to file your claim, it definitely helps. Before you even need to file your claim, you’ll need to complete all the state’s required paperwork. You may even need to attend a hearing. If you received a serious or permanent disability from your accident, it may be difficult or even impossible for you to complete these tasks on your own. However, a lawyer can act as an agent in these situations. Because of this, they can complete any forms and make appearances for you at hearings. This will allow you to forget about the legal minutia of your case and focus on what matters – recovering from your injury.
