Construction workers face dangerous working conditions every day. When a worker suffers a serious injury on the job, he/she could be out of work for an extended period of time. We handle all types of workers compensation claims on behalf of injured employees, making sure they receive all of the statutory benefits they are entitled to under Massachusetts law.
We also pursue third-party claims whenever appropriate. For example, if an outside contractor was on site and contributed to an accident and resulting injury to a worker not employed by them, they could be held liable for the worker’s injury and related damages in a separate civil negligence lawsuit. While the outside contractor would not be subject to the provisions of the workers compensation statute in a case brought by a non-employee, they would be subject to all of the laws that apply in any similar lawsuit filed in court.
Let us know the facts surrounding your work injury. Whatever your situation, we will work hard to maximize your benefits and damages.
