Massachusetts workers' compensation laws help to ensure that Massachusetts employees who are injured or disabled on the job receive payment for their medical bills and their lost wages, without legal battles to prove negligence. Massachusetts worker's compensation laws provide compensation to family members of a loved one who has been injured and also provide benefits for Massachusetts families of those Massachusetts employees who are killed while working at their Massachusetts places of employment.
The Massachusetts worker’s compensation statute is a “no fault” wage replacement system designed to pay the injured Massachusetts worker for both medical benefits and Massachusetts lost wages during his or her period of incapacity from work. What “no fault” means is that it doesn't matter who was at fault for the injuries; even if the injury sustained was actually caused by the Massachusetts employee who was injured, he or she is still entitled to recover both medical benefits and lost wages.
While the Massachusetts worker's compensation statute was designed to protect the interests of the injured Massachusetts worker and his or her family, disputes between the injured Massachusetts worker, his or her Massachusetts employer and the worker's compensation insurer often do arise, which undoubtedly makes an already difficult situation more problematic and troublesome.
Often, There Are No Massachusetts Worker's Compensation Attorney’s Fees To Pay.
When you hire our expert and highly skilled Massachusetts workers' compensation injury lawyers, you don’t pay anything up front, if anything at all.
Under the Massachusetts worker’s compensation statute, the vast majority of Massachusetts workers' compensation attorney's fees are paid by the Massachusetts worker’s compensation insurer, not by you or your beneficiaries.
If you are required to retain a Massachusetts workers' compensation attorney, to either obtain benefits the Massachusetts worker's compensation insurer is refusing to pay or to defend against an action of the workers' compensation insurer who is attempting to reduce or terminate your benefits, it is the legal obligation of the insurer to pay your legal fees. It is only if your Massachusetts worker's compensation case is resolved by lump sum settlement that an attorney may charge a fee equal to 20% of the gross settlement.

In more unfortunate circumstances, a Massachusetts worker may be unable to return to their previous employment as a result of the workplace harm that they suffered. In these instances, vocational training may be part of the damage award. Some of the vocational rehabilitation services to which a Massachusetts injured worker may be entitled include: accommodation assistance; assistance with job searching, application and resume services; counseling; ergonomics assessment; interview coaching; labor market surveys; on-the-job training; transferable-skills analysis and testing, tuition payments and wage assessment evaluation. Massachusetts employers are not protected from liability in civil courts in the event that they act in bad faith or have committed a criminal offense. Massachusetts workers are then able to file an intentional tort claim against their employer in these instances.
