Have You Been Injured on the Job?

If you are injured on the job in Massachusetts, you probably have many questions. What are my rights? What does the process of obtaining workers' compensation involve? Am I allowed to use my doctor? At Pellegrini, Seeley, Ryan & Blakesley, P.C. (PSRB) our worker's compensation attorneys can answer all of your questions and help you through the process so you can receive the compensation you deserve for your injuries.

Many times, worker's compensation insurance adjusters deny claims outright or deny claims for necessary medical treatment. Often, they also insist that the injured worker consults a doctor chosen by the adjuster, not by the worker and the insurance company often pays this doctor. Meanwhile, the attorneys representing the employer often argue that the injuries are not the employer's fault but rather due to circumstances they are not responsible for causing.

One frequently used tactic employed by insurance companies and their lawyers is to offer the injured worker a timely but inadequate settlement. When a worker is injured and unable to earn a paycheck, taking this quick payment can seem attractive, even though the injured employee may regret taking the payment in the future as medical expenses pile up and wages are lost due to an inability to return to work.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the rights of nursing home residents?

Nursing home residents have certain rights and protections under both state and federal law. The nursing home must list and give all new residents a copy of these rights.

These resident rights include, but aren't limited to:

  • The right to be treated with dignity and respect.
  • The right to be informed in writing about services and fees before you enter the nursing home.
  • The right to manage your own money or to choose someone else you trust to do this for you.
  • The right to privacy, and to keep and use your personal belongings and property as long as it doesn't interfere with the rights, health, or safety of others.
  • The right to be informed about your medical condition, medications, and to see your own doctor. You also have the right to refuse medications and treatments.
  • The right to have a choice over your schedule (for example, when you get up and go to sleep), your activities and other preferences that are important to you.
  • The right to an environment more like a home that maximizes your comfort and provides you with assistance to be as independent as possible.

Are nursing homes required to keep records of the care provided?

Yes, both state and federal law mandates that facilities must maintain documentation of medical assessments and all plans of care.  As a guardian, you are eligible to review those documents.
