"There's been an investigator spying on me and talking to my neighbors about me!"
"The insurance company nurse is pressuring my doctor to release me to go back to work before I'm ready!"
"I'm afraid I'll lose my job because I was hurt at work!"
"My doctor has prescribed treatment for me and the insurance company won't approve it!"
"The insurance company doctor that examined me has lied about my condition!"
"The insurance company told me that if I'm not back to work in six months, my benefits will stop!"
"My employer promises 'light duty' until I get better, but they want me to do my regular job."
Sound familiar? If you've been hurt at work, you may have already encountered one of more of these problems and if not, you probably will.
These days the insurance company and your employer have a large arsenal of weapons to use to keep you from receiving the benefits that the law allows. They are smart, sophisticated, and well financed.
You can't do it alone! Every day we meet new clients who tell us that they were relying on the insurance company to take care of them. Some of them waited until it was too late before they sought advice. Do not let that happen to you.
No matter how simple or complicated your workers' compensation claim, you need a lawyer. You may not want your employer to know that you've sought counsel and we respect that. You may only need someone to answer your questions and be available if a problem arises. We can do that. You may need an experienced advocate who can aggressively pursue your rights before the Department of Industrial Accidents and we've been doing that for over 40 years.
Legal fees are regulated by law and in most cases are paid by either the insurance company or as a percentage of a lump sum settlement.
For your own protection, contact a lawyer today. If you choose to contact our office, one of our experienced attorneys will spend as much time as you need answering any questions that you may have.
The practice of workers’ compensation law in Massachusetts involves representing injured workers in the full range of administrative proceedings before the Massachusetts Department of Industrial Accidents. Our attorneys handle the complete preparation of workers’ compensation claims ranging from injuries resulting in death or paraplegia and paralysis to simple back strains.
Our focus is to make sure the employee:
• is receiving the correct weekly benefits;
• that injury-related medical expenses are being paid; and
• develop the evidence necessary to prove all claims for workers’ compensation benefits when such claims are denied.
We will aggressively pursue claims for benefits from the initial filing of the claim through all stages of a workers' compensation claim.
