Injured At Work? You Have Options.
Work-related injuries can sideline you for a long time. They bring about serious medical and financial concerns.
If you were injured on the job, or are suffering from a work-related illness, you may be entitled to workers’ compensation benefits. Massachusetts law gives injured employees the right to these benefits — including medical coverage, lost wages and other injury-related expenses — regardless of who was at fault. However, the trade-off is that, in most cases, the injured worker can’t sue the employer directly in a personal injury claim. Nonetheless, you may have a claim against a third party — such as a product manufacturer, general contractor or fellow subcontractor — if their negligence contributed to your injuries.
