Workers’ Compensation Attorney Serving
Norfolk County, MA

construction accident law firm norfolk county ma


Employees suffered nearly three million non-fatal injuries in the workplace in 2018. These kinds of injuries can have serious repercussions on the victim’s life, ranging from a temporary absence from work to permanent disability. If you were injured in an incident at your workplace, you may be unsure of how to proceed. Sometimes, employees are afraid to file workers’ comp claims because they don’t want to “stir things up.” Sometimes employers and insurance providers try to deny workers’ compensation, even if the employee in question doesn’t have an exemption. In those cases, you may need an attorney to represent you in a workers’ compensation claim. From construction accidents to chemical exposure, a law firm can help you claim the money you’re owed. If you need a lawyer with experience in construction accidents and other claims in Westwood, MA, call William Crowley. Attorney William Crowley has more than three decades of experience helping his clients claim the workers’ compensation they deserve. He has dedicated his career to helping the little guys strike back against massive corporations. He set out on that mission in 1986 when he worked on the famous case Anne Anderson et al v. Cryovac et al. He successfully represented his clients, residents of the town of Woburn, against a company that poisoned their water supply with carcinogens. In 1996, the story was adapted into the Oscar-nominated film A Civil Affair. You can trust attorney Crowley to deliver the same level of service to clients in these areas:

  • Boston, MA
  • Suffolk County, MA
  • Norfolk County, MA
  • Middlesex County, MA
  • Plymouth, MA
  • Bristol County, MA
  • Barnstable County, MA
  • Cambridge, MA
  • Braintree, MA
  • Cape Cod, MA


Massachusetts recognizes the need for a financial safety net for injured workers. Workers’ compensation insurance 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 or workers’ compensation insurance policy, talk to an attorney that specializes in workers’ compensation claims.

While you don’t necessarily need lawyers to file your workers’ compensation 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, workers’ compensation attorneys 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. By partnering with attorneys to get help with your workers’ compensation insurance policy, you can worry less about the intricacies of filing a claim.


If you received an injury at work and need financial aid, don’t wait. While it may seem like waiting to file your case will allow you to get your ducks in a row, you need to act fast. That’s the best way to ensure success in your case. If you’re confused about how to proceed, call attorney Crowley. Regardless of whether you need a lawyer for a construction accident or some other workers’ compensation claim, he can help. With more than three decades of experience, he’ll be able to give you honest answers to crucial questions. Find out what professional representation in the Westwood, MA area can do for your case.
