Each state’s workers compensation law is different. In Massachusetts, after 5 days following a work injury, you may file a claim for benefits. You are entitled to weekly lost wage checks totaling 60 percent of your average weekly wage, as well as free medical care for your injuries as long as that treatment is related to your injury on the job. The Massachusetts Workers Compensation statute is complex and confusing, with many sections written to favor the insurance companies. You need an experienced attorney on your side.
Did you know that after an initial claim for benefits, the insurance company for your work has 180 days during which they can modify or terminate your benefits without recourse? Often times an employee will be forced into returning to work without being fully recovered from their injuries or pressured to go on Short Term disability instead of making the workers compensation insurance company responsible. More often, an employee will be denied payment of benefits right from the start.
